c. Recommendations to the Legislature for changes in old 
laws and the enactment of new ones. 

a. Visitation, 

The direct visitation of the State institutions and of the 
private charitable corporations specified in Acts of 1909, chap- 
ter 379, as well as the investigation under Acts of 1910, chap- 
ter 181, of charities seeking incorporation, is made by commit- 
tees and ofiicials of the Board, as directed in the by-laws. The 
results of this visitation, with the three exceptions noted below, 
are given on pp. 21 et seq. of this part of the report. (1) The 
investigation of associations which have applied for charters 
since the Acts of 1910, chapter 181, went into effect will be 
found in Part IL (pp. iii-v), which is devoted exclusively to 
private charitable corporations. (2) The inspection of chari- 
table agencies provided for by Acts of 1909, chapter 379, is 
taken up in Part II. (pp. v-xiv). (3) The results of alms- 
house inspection are given in full in Part III. The inspector 
has, during the official year, visited every almshouse once, 19 
have been visited twice, 3 three times. In addition, the inspec- 
tor has conferred with Overseers of the Poor of 34 different 
cities and towns in matters pertaining to almshouse conditions 
and management and other matters concerning the work of the 
Board. 

Members of the Board have, from time to time, made visits 
to almshouses; in most cases to consider the condition of the 
buildings and the welfare of the inmates. The Board has been 
greatly assisted in this friendly visiting by its corps of volun- 
tary almshouse visitors.

h. Publication. 

In addition to its full annual report, of which 2,000 copies 
are printed, there are issued under the law, for the use of the 
Board, 500 copies of so much of the report as relates to the city 
and town almshouses and statistics of poor persons relieved by 
cities and towns, and 1,000 copies of so much as relates to 
charitable corporations. 

In Part II. of the report are given abstracts of the reports 
of charitable corporations whose personal property is exempt 
from taxation, the reports being made annually to the Board, 
under the law. Of the 744 corporations whose returns were 
called for during the last official year, 42 failed to report; 34 
of these delinquents have heretofore made the return. Twenty- 
three of the reports received were from corporations reporting 
for the first time. 

The purpose in a seriatim presentation of the various reports 
is that of acquainting the public with the work of the respective 
agencies throughout the State. There is ample evidence that 
this purpose is being accomplished. 

With the passage of chapter 82 of the Acts of 1913, annual 
reports will soon be assured from all active corporations, thus 
making Part II. of this report a complete directory of incorpo- 
rated agencies. 

Part II. contains also the record of new corporations, the 
petitions for which charities have been investigated by the 
Board. There is also an account of the Board's visitation and 
inspection of all agencies under the provisions of chapter 379 
of the Acts of 1909. 

The chapter on poor relief, found in Part III. of the report, 
furnishes details respecting the poor supported or relieved at 
public expense during the year ending March 31, 1913, — their 
numbers, condition, treatment and cost, — in tabulated form, 
which facilitates comparison. These facts are gathered from the 
annual returns of Overseers of the Poor of the several cities 
and towns; from the published town reports; from the records 
of the State institutions in which such relief has been rendered ; 
and from the files of this Board. 

Statistics of numbers refer strictly to* the year ending March 



PartL] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 9 

31, 1913. Figures relating to cost, however, contain an element 
of inaccuracy, since the financial returns of the cities and towns 
relate, in each instance, to the town's fiscal year, while the only 
figures available for State care relate to the State's fiscal year, 
closing ^N'ovember 30, 1913. Figures of cost, therefore, are 
comparable only in the most general way. Greater accuracy 
in these cost tables awaits the adoption of a uniform town year, 
which will be coincident with the State's fiscal year. One step 
in advance has been made during this past year through legisla- 
tion making the town year uniform but not coincident with the 
State's fiscal year. The act does not apply to cities (chapter 
692, Acts of 1913). In the meantime it is believed that data 
regarding expenses for the State and for local communities are 
worth setting together for general comparison in spite of over- 
lapping periods. 

The tabulations taken from these returns of poor relief show 
that within the year covered the whole number of cases receiv- 
ing public support or relief, excluding vagrants, was 71,411, of 
whom 19,988 were aided in institutions. State or local, and 
51,423 were relieved outside, either in their own home or in 
private families not their own. This latter class constitute the 
group usually indicated by the term " public outdoor relief." 
The total cared for in city and town almshouses numbered 
11,910; in other institutions, 3,404; in their own homes, 
49,886; in private families not their own, 1,537; the cities and 
towns aided 66,737; the remainder, or 4,674, falling to the 
State. The sexes were almost equal. The foreign-bom repre- 
sented 33.5 per cent., a proportion which is 2.1 per cent, higher 
than the ratio of foreign born generally to the total in the 
population of the State. A negligible percentage were of the 
colored race. In respect of age at time of aid rendered 31,124, 
or 43.5 per cent., were under twenty years; 27,354, or 38.3 per 
cent, were between twenty and sixty; and 10,663, or 14.9 per 
cent, were sixty or over. The mentally impaired numbered 613. 

Instances of tramps and vagrants aided were reported to the 
number of 14,141. This figure is, however, certainly an under- 
estimate, inasmuch as the overseers, charged mth the making 
of these returns, seldom report those instances of relief to 
tramps and wayfarers v/hich are taken care of by the police. 



10 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

On the other hand, because each application for relief, if fol- 
lowed by aid, is counted as one person aided, it is certain that 
the number of cases reported greatly exceeds the actual number 
of separate individuals represented. 

The total expenses for public poor relief were $3,533,843.57. 
The State paid $623,890.66 of this sum; the remainder, or 
$2,909,952.91, fell to the cities and towns. Of the local gross 
expense, $2,872,802.37 was for ordinary outlays, including 
$251,577.56 for administration. This item includes also 
$1,285,940.60 for almshouse maintenance, $238,849.62 for care 
in other institutions, $215,039.10 for aid in private families, 
and $881,395.49 for aid in the recipient's own home. From 
the total is to be subtracted $337,426.69 received on account 
of almshouse care, and all other receipts, amounting to $606,- 
266.05, giving $2,266,536.32 as the net ordinary expenditure. 
Extraordinary outlays totalled $37,150.54. 

c. Legislation, 
The principal recommendations of the Board for legislative 
action are as follows : — 

1. The establishment of an additional institution for the 
care of persons who have been legally declared to be feeble- 
minded, but who, because of the lack of facilities for their 
proper custody and treatment, still remain in the community 
and in institutions not suited to their care. 

The existing institutions for the care of feeble-minded 
persons are filled to the limit of their capacity, and the wait- 
ing list of persons adjudged feeble-minded is greatly in ex- 
cess of one thousand. Enlargement of the Wrentham State 
School, now being completed, can take care of but a small 
fraction of those persons who for lack of segregation are a 
menace in the community, in that they are a fruitful source 
of illegitimacy, prostitution, crime, and the perpetuation of 
mental defect. Much that the Commonwealth and its local 
communities are now doing to relieve distress and to safeguard 
public health and morals, is done as a direct result of their own 
failure to cut off the causes of such ills by segregating the per- 
sons who constitute the source. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 11 

This Board therefore concurs with the State Board of In- 
sanity in recommending the immediate establishment of an 
additional State school for the segregation and care of feeble- 
minded persons, such institution to be administered after the 
manner of existing schools, and to fall under the supervision 
of the State Board of Insanity. 

2. The Board has constantly in its care hundreds of children, 
each one of Tvhom is for days, weeks, or perhaps months in need 
of hospital treatment. Such children are for the time being 
incapable of placement in homes. They require treatment in 
some institution until their health is such that they may be sent 
out into the community. With a total of 5,500 children in the 
Board's custody, this margin of cases requiring hospital care is 
constant and may be expected to increase six or seven per cent, 
each year, in exact proportion to the normal increase in the 
total number of wards. Some of these are feeble-minded, and 
would be cared for properly should the recommendation of the 
State Board of Insanity and of this Board, in regard to more 
care for the feeble-minded, meet with favor; but a large num- 
ber must still remain. Yet the Board has no hospital in which 
to treat these children. Some, falling sick in their foster homes, 
are cared for by private hospitals at State expense. Most are 
sent to the State Infirmary, the only hospital to which the Board 
can send them. Here they are out of place, and tend to hamper 
the infirmary in its more legitimate activities. At the same 
time, they lose the benefit of special care and treatment, so fre- 
quently demanded by the miserable condition in which they are 
found by the authorities and in which they remain at the time 
of commitment to the Board's custody. 

In view of these considerations, the Board recommends the 
establishment of a children's hospital, in some place other than 
Tewksbury, for the temporary care and treatment of State 
minor wards too ill to be cared for in foster homes. 

3. The Board recommends the creation of a separate board 
of trustees to administer Penikese Hospital, retaining only the 
supervision in this Board. 



12 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

Though the State Board of Charity has always believed that 
lepers should be cared for on the main land where nearness of 
friends and relatives would soften the sadness of exile, and 
where the outlay of public money would be much less, it has 
nevertheless maintained and developed the hospital located on 
the Island of Penikese in response to public feeling, so that, 
should the dispensary building asked for this year be granted, 
this institution would rank with the most efficient leprosaria 
in the world. And this work will be cheerfully continued, 
should the Legislature consider that the wiser course. This 
recommendation of a separate administrative Board is made 
solely in the belief that the administration of State institutions 
and their supervision should in all cases be placed in separate 
bodies, and that the duties of a board primarily supervisory in 
nature should not be complicated by administrative duties, 
where necessity or considerations of public expediency do not 
appear. 

4. The Board believes that supervision should be assumed by 
the State government over all wayfarers' lodges and cheap lodg- 
ing houses. Because this is a problem not separable in treat- 
ment from vagrancy, outdoor poor relief, and drunkenness, the 
duty of such supervision should fall in the department of 
Charity. 

5. An amendment to chapter 181 of the Acts of 1910, ren- 
dering the Board's approval requisite to the incorporation of 
private charities. Under this statute, the Board is required to 
investigate all petitions for the incorporation of private chari- 
ties, to give public hearings and to report its findings to the 
Secretary of the Commonwealth. The operation of this law, in 
connection with chapter 402 of the Acts of 1903, requiring 
annual reporting by all charities, and chapter 379 of the Acts 
of 1909 providing annual inspection of incorporated charitable 
agencies, is demonstrating beyond all question the wisdom of 
State supervision of incorporated charitable agencies. Though 
this policy is of recent date, the incorporated charities of the 
entire Commonwealth have come to look upon State supervision 
as a help in the development of right standards of relief. The 



PartL] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 13 

Board believes that the time has come when its special knowl- 
edge in the field of private charities should be brought to bear 
upon all new petitions for the incorporation of charities by 
rendering its approval requisite to the issuance of a charter. 

6. In its supervision of the field of relief, public and private, 
the Board makes a study of all agencies and sources for philan- 
thropic effort. In this study it is necessary to ascertain the 
various charitable trusts, and special funds created by will; but 
no means exist by which the fact of such trusts and bequests 
may be obtained, except the long and costly method of search- 
ing local records. The Board therefore requests legislation pro- 
viding for notice from registers of probate and of deeds, when 
wills or deeds are filed containing charitable bequests, trusts or 
foundations. 

7. In order to carry on its duties with the highest degree of 
efficiency and expediency, the Board requests legislation pro- 
viding for certain special district police officers, to serve the 
Board in its execution of chapter 456 of the Acts of 1911, and 
chapter 563 of the Acts of 1913. These officers would be in 
every way analogous to police officers already authorized for 
certain purposes in the Board's work, and would involve no 
additional expense to the Commonwealth. 

8. Because of necessary increase in the number of the Board's 
agents to whom cash is advanced by the Board's disbursing 
officer, to cover their expenses, the amount of such advance 
money allowed to be held at one time by the said disbursing 
officer imder the law, has again become inadequate, unless ex- 
pense accounts are to be rendered by agents every few days, 
causing much unnecessary expenditure of labor not only in this 
department, but in the department of the auditor of the Com- 
monwealth. To relieve this situation, the Board requests an 
amendment to chapter six of the Revised Laws, increasing the 
amount of advance money which may be held by its disbursing 
officer at any one time, and also increasing his bond in pro- 
portion. 



14 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

9. Experience in the administration of Penikese Hospital 
fully demonstrates the need of specially adapted facilities for 
the care and treatment of lepers. It is essential that the en- 
forcement of cleanliness with regularity of treatment be brought 
about without unduly exposing the staff of officers whose duty 
it is to bathe these patients, treat them and bind up their 
wounds. The Board therefore asks for a one-story structure 
containing bathing facilities, dispensary and space for X-ray 
apparatus, with adjoining wings for bed cases. The outside 
estimate for this structure equipped and furnished is $40,000. 

The following measures affecting the Board were passed by 
the Legislature of 1913 : — 

Acts of 1913, Chapter 73. 

An Act relative to the care and treatment of persons 
afflicted with leprosy. 

Section 1. Section one of chapter four hundred and seventy-

sary for the well-being of the patient and the safety of the public, 
and may discharge such persons when in its judgment their health 
and the public welfare would not be endangered thereby, — so as 
to read as follows: — Section 1. The state board of charity, sub-

with leprosy, and for said purpose may expend a sum not exceed- 
ing fifty thousand dollars. The said board in maintaining said 
hospital shall have power to retain all persons afflicted with leprosy 
for such time as it shall deem necessary for the well-being of the 
patient and the safety of the public, and may discharge such per-

Section 1. Whoever, not being the husband of a woman, gets 
her with child shall be guilty of a misdemeanor. Proceedings 
under any section of this act may be begun in the municipal, dis- 
trict or police court having jurisdiction in the place where the 
defendant lives, and if there be no such court, then in any munic- 
ipal, district or police court in the county; or in the municipal, 
district or police court having jurisdiction in the place where the 
mother of the illegitimate child lives ; and if there be no such court, 
then in any municipal, district or police court in the county. If

mother lives. 

Section 2. If the defendant pleads guilty or nolo contendere, or 
is found guilty, the court or justice shall enter a judgment adjudg- 
ing him the father of such child; but such adjudication shall not

defendant, until the child is born or the court or justice finds that 
the mother is at least six months advanced in pregnancy. !N"o 
provision of law limiting adjournments or continuances shall apply 
to proceedings under any section of this act. At the sitting when 
such adjudication is made, if made after a plea of not guilty, the 
defendant may appeal therefrom to the superior court as in other 
criminal cases. Such adjudication, whether any sentence be im- 
posed or not, shall be final and conclusive unless an appeal from 
such adjudication to the superior court be taken as hereinbefore 
provided, or, if such adjudication be made by the superior court, 
unless set aside upon an appeal taken not later than three days 
thereafter under the provisions of section thirty-two of chapter 
two hundred and nineteen of the Revised Laws, or upon exceptions.

year thereafter grant a new trial for any cause. 

Section 3. If the court or justice having jurisdiction of any 
case under any section of this act becomes satisfied that no living 
child will be born of which the defendant at the time of making 
the complaint was the father, or that the defendant and the mother 
have married each other and the child has become or will be the 
legitimate child of the defendant, or that adequate provision has 
been made for the maintenance of the child, the complaint may be

certifies that such provision has been made, no further complaint 
shall be maintained under any section of this act. 

Section 4. If the child has not been born at the time of such 
adjudication, the court or justice having jurisdiction of the case

having jurisdiction of the case may make an order for the payment 
to the mother or to a probation officer of a sum of money to be 
determined by the court or justice for the expenses of the confine- 
ment of the mother, and for failure to comply with such order may 
order that the defendant be committed to jail, as for a contempt of 
court, for a term not exceeding two months, unless he shall sooner 
comply with the order of the court. 

Section 5. After such adjudication, the court or justice having 
jurisdiction of the case may make such order as may be considered 
expedient relative to the care and custody of the child, and after- 
ward from time to time may revise and alter the said order, as 
justice and the welfare of the child require, and the order shall 
be binding on all persons. 

Section 6. After such adjudication, and after the child has 
been born, the defendant shall be liable to contribute reasonably 
to the support of the child during minority, and shall be subject 
upon the original complaint under section one of this act, to all

child shall have been begotten within or without this common- 
wealth, and whether such child shall have been begotten before or 
after the taking effect of this act, who neglects or refuses to con- 
tribute reasonably to the support and maintenance of such child

Acts of 1913, Chapter 763. 

An Act to provide for suitably aiding mothers with de- 
pendent CHILDREN. 

Section 1. In every city and town the overseers of the poor 
shall, subject to the provisions of the subsequent sections of this 
act, aid all mothers with dependent children under fourteen years 
of age, if such mothers are fit to bring up their children. The aid 
furnished shall be sufficient to enable the mothers to bring up 
their children properly in their own homes; and such mothers and 
their children shall not be deemed to be paupers by reason of 
receiving aid as aforesaid. 

Section 2. Before aiding anv mother under the foregoing sec- 
tion, except as hereinafter provided, the overseers of the poor shall 
determine that the mother is fit to bring up her children and that 
the other members of the household and the surroundinsrs of the 
home are such as to make for good character, and that aid from 
the overseers is necessary to enable her to bring up her children 
properly, by making an immediate and careful inquiry including 
the resources of the family and the ability of its other members, 
if any, to work or otherwise contribute to its support, the existence 
of relatives able to assist the family, and of individuals, societies 
or agencies who may be interested therein; shall take all lawful 
means to compel all persons bound to support the mother and 



PartL] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 19 

children to support them, and to enforce any other legal rights 
for their benefit; shall press all members of the family who are 
able to work, other than the mother and her dependent children, 
to secure work ; shall tiT to secure work for them ; and shall secure 
all necessary aid for the mother and children which can be secured 
from relatives, organizations or individuals. Xothing herein con- 
tained shall be construed to prevent the overseers from giving 
prompt and suitable temporary aid hereunder, pending compliance 
with the requirements of this section, when in their opinion such 
aid is necessary and cannot be obtained from other sources. A 
detailed statement of expenses incurred under this section shall be 
rendered to the state board of charity, together with such certifi- 
cates or other guarantees as the said board may require. 

Sectiox 3. The said overseers, either by one of their own num- 
ber or by their duly appointed agent, shall visit at least once in 
every three months at their homes or other place or places where 
they may be living, each mother and her dependent children who 
are being aided financially or otherwise by said overseers, and after 
each visit shall make and keep on file as a part of their official 
records a detailed statement of the condition of the home and 
family and all other data which may assist in determining the 
wisdom of the measures taken and the advisability of their con- 
tinuance; and said overseers shall at least once in each year re- 
consider the case of each mother with dependent children with 
whom they ' are dealing, and enter their determination with the 
reason therefor on their official records. 

Sectiox 4. This act shall apply to all mothers and their de- 
pendent children, whether or not they or any of them may have a 
settlement within the commonwealth, who shall have resided in the 
commonwealth not less than three years. Xo person shall acquire 
a settlement or be in process of acquiring a settlement while re- 
ceiving aid hereunder. 

Sectiox 5. The state board of charity shall hereafter supervise 
the work done and measures taken by the overseers of the poor of 
the several cities and towns in respect to families in which there is 
one child or more under the age of fourteen, whether or not such 
family or any member thereof has a settlement within the com- 
monwealth; and for this purpose may establish such rules relative 
to notice as they deem necessary and may visit and inspect any or 
all families aided under this act, and shall have access to any 
records and other data kept by the overseers of the poor or their

22 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

for Boys, at Westboroiigh ; the Industrial School for Boys, at 
Shirley; the State Industrial School for Girls, at Lancaster; 
the Massachusetts Hospital School, at Canton ; the Xorth Read- 
ing State Sanatorium; the Rutland State Sanatorium; the 
Lakeville State Sanatorium; and the Westfield State Sana- 
torium. 

The supervisory powers of the Board over these institutions 
extend to the right of investigation and recommendation as to 
any matters relating to the institutions, but the administration 
of each is vested in a separate Board of Trustees. 

The State Infirmary and the State Farm are controlled by 
one Board of Trustees. Its membership is as follows: John B. 
Tivnan, Salem, Chairman; Helen R. Smith, Xewton ; Leonard 
Huntress, Lowell ; Galen L. Stone, Brookline ; Xellie E. Talbot, 
Brookline; Francis W. Anthony, Haverhill; Walter F. Dear- 
born, Cambridge. 

The Norfolk State Hospital for the care and treatment of 
inebriates is administered by the Board of Trustees of the 
Foxborough State Hospital, composed as follows: Robert A. 
Woods, Boston, Chairman; W. Rodman Peabody, Cambridge; 
Philip R. Allen, Walpole ; Timothy J. Foley, Worcester ; Frank 
L. Loeke, Maiden ; Edwin Mulready, Rockland ; William H. 
Prescott, Boston. 

The Trustees of Hospitals for Consumptives administer the 
four sanatoria, but have no powers over the tuberculosis wards 
of the State Infirmary. The Board is constituted as follows : 
Walter C. Bailey, M.D., Boston, Chairman; Albert C. Getchell, 
Worcester; Arthur Drinkwater, Cambridge; Sylvia B. Knowl- 
ton, Newton ; Daniel L. Prendergast, Brookline ; Simon Swig, 
Taunton ; George A. Dunn, Gardner. 

The three training or industrial schools fall under the control 
of the Trustees of the Massachusetts Training Schools. The 
Board is as follows: Carl Dreyfus, Boston, Chairman; James 
J. Sheehan, Peabody ; Mary Josephine Bleakie, Brookline ; 
Matthew Luce, Cohasset ; John F. Scully, Arlington ; Elizabeth 
G. Evans, Boston ; Charles M. Davenport, Boston ; James W. 
McDonald, Marlborough ; Lewis M. Palmer, South Framingham. 

The Massachusetts Hospital School is administered by the 
following Board of Trustees: Edward H. Bradford, M.D., 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 23 

Boston, Chairman; Leonard W. Ross, Mattapan, Secretary; 
Walter C. Baylies, Taunton ; William F. Fitzgerald, Brookline ; 
Alfred S. Pinkerton, Worcester. 

In addition to the eleven State institutions which the Board 
supervises is Penikese Hospital, the Massachusetts hospital 
for the care and treatment of persons afflicted with leprosy. 
This institution is administered directly by the State Board of 
Charity. For the sake of uniformity and comparison, all twelve 
institutions are grouped together in this report. 

Numbers. 
The total number of cases under care in these institutions 
during the year was 19.506. Of the total number 15.063 were 
males and 4:,44r3 were females. Ten thousand and sixty were 
received for hospital treatment ; 2,182 w^ere juvenile delin- 
quents; 6,140 were adult oftenders, mostly chronic drunkards; 
and 1,124 were indigent persons, having no legal settlement 
and not included in the above classifications. Of the hospital 
cases, 3,213 were suifering from pulmonary tubercidosis ; 1,623 
were insane. 

Capacity. 
Three institutions, namely, Lyman School, the Industrial 
School for Boys, and the North Reading State Sanatorium, 
show^ed an excess in daily average attendance over normal 
capacity. All of the remaining nine, w4th the exception of 
the State Farm, are practically full, the attendance at times 
exceeding proper facilities for care and treatment. The In- 
dustrial School for Boys is in process of increasing its normal 
capacity to meet the pressure of commitments. Two of the 
sanatoria, showing an excess last year, appear this year in the 
decrease column. This condition is tem])orary. however, and 
arises out of the construction of new buildings included in 
the normal capacity but not fully occupied at the end of the 
year. The marked increase in commitments to Lyman School, 
noted in 1912, has continued throughout 1913, so that the 
overcrowxling has become serious. The trustees ask this year 
for a new cottage to house 30 boys. The Industrial School 
for Girls has been somewhat relieved bv the transfer of cases

to Sherborn. Serious overcrowding at the State Infirmary 
must continue unless provision can be made elsewhere for the 
insane and the feeble-minded. The State Board of Insanity 
and this Board unite this year in recommending the im- 
mediate establishment of an additional school for the feeble- 
minded. The accompanying tabulation indicates the fluctua- 
tions of daily attendance above and below the normal capacity 
for inmates for each institution.

Cost of Maintenance. 
The combined appropriations for maintenance were $1,620,- 
359. The total expenditures on the same account were 
$1,635,236.60, creating a net deficit of $14,877.60. Of the 
sum expended, $599,930.30 was for salaries, wages and labor; 
all other expenses, $1,035,306.30. For the coming year the 
respective Boards of Trustees submit estimates for maintenance 
appropriations, as shown in Table I., all of which are approved 
by this Board. To the tabulation is added for better compari-

son the Board's own estimate for Penikese Hospital. Estimates 
for special purposes will be considered later in this report 
under each of the institutions separately. 

COMPAEATIVE ViEW OF MoVEMEXT OF PoPULATIOX AXD OF 
EXPEXDITUEES. 

The movement of population in the twelve institutions men- 
tioned in the foregoing pages is shown in brief but comparative 
form in Table 11. Inmates are classified by sex, while the 
daily average attendance appears in a column adjoining the 
average number of officers and employees. The average num- 
ber of persons employed, shown in this table, is obtained from 
an exact analysis of the pay rolls reducing all employment to 
a basis of days. Table III. affords a comparative view of ex- 
penditures at all the institutions, classified as " current " and 
^' extraordinary." Tables II. and III. are drawn in accordance 
with the statistical form adopted by the National Conference 
of Charities and Correction, Mav 15, 1906.

Classification of discharges: deaths, 597; removals, 3,522. 
Number of maternity cases, 134; living births, 131. 

Total valuation of plant, real and personal, $1,687,866.98. 
Value per unit of capacity, $722.54. Provides almshouse and 
hospital care for indigent persons not chargeable for support 
to any city or town. During the year 6,473 persons have been 
under care, 482 less than in 1912, and 596 less than in 1911. 
The largest daily census was 2,595, the smallest, 2,170; the 
daily average being 2,312.87. For the preceding year the 
corresponding figures were 2,573 and 2,074, with a daily 
average of 2,283.44. formal capacity of institution, 2,336. 

Of the whole number cared for, 6,191, of which 4,490 were 
males and 1,701 females, or 95 per cent., were treated as hos- 
pital patients. In this number were 1,081 cases of tuber- 
culosis (926 of which were cases of phthisis), 5 of diphtheria, 
1 of typhoid fever, 4 of scarlet fever, 12 of whooping cough, 15 
of measles, 35 of chicken pox. Of the 597 deaths, 202 were 
from tuberculosis. Six hundred and sixty-one surgical opera- 
tions were performed. Of the 926 cases of pulmonary tuber- 
culosis in the consumptive ward, 824 cases were males, 102 
females. Of this number, 26 were discharged as disease ar-

rested, 6 apparently cured, 263 relieved, 202 died, 130 not 
relieved. 

Of the 134 births at this institution during the year, 68 were 
males and 66 were females. Of this number there were 131 
living births, namely, 65 males and 66 females. Among the 
mothers of these children, 47 were born in the United States, 
20 in Ireland, 9 in England, 28 in the British Provinces; 30 
were foreign born. Eight hundred and twenty-four of the 
whole niimber under care were insane. 

Of the 4,240 new admissions, 2,375, or 56 per cent., were 
from Boston. Those native in Massachusetts numbered 987, 
or 23.2 per cent. Two thousand five hundred and thirty- 
four were foreign born, representing 38 different countries. 
Eight hundred and fifty-two, or 20.9 per cent., were under 
twenty-one years of age. 

With an appropriation of $444,200, a total of $444,130.56 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, $155,533.42 was for salaries, wages and 
labor; all other expenses, $288,597.14. Weekly per capita 
cost of maintenance computed on expenses less sales and re- 
funds from maintenance, $3,675. Total receipts from all 
sources other than the State treasury, $24,546.70. Xet cost of 
maintenance to the Commonwealth, $419,583.86. Ratio of 
daily average number of persons employed to daily average 
number of inmates, 1 to 7. Eor detailed analysis of receipts 
and expenditures, see pp. 69-80. The Trustees estimate that 
$471,000 will be necessary for maintenance in 1914. (See 
table, p. 26.) 

The women's special ward, nearing completion at the close 
of last year, is now^ occupied and houses 35 patients. The 
new building for male employees was still unoccupied at the 
close of the year, though authorized in 1911. It is, however, 
now at the point of completion, and will house 40 employees. 

The pathological laboratory and the extension to the adminis- 
tration building are both under way, but neither improvement 
was ready for occupancy at the close of the year. 

Perhaps the most noteworthy fact in the year's work at 
this institution is the rapid extension of clinical laboratory 
work, and the further intensive study brought to bear upon the 



32 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

more trying problems in treatment. Largely among these prob- 
lems has been the treatment of syphilis. As reported last yea-r, 
much encouragement has been derived from the use of an 
arsenical preparation. This treatment was continued during 
the past year, showing a high percentage of cases benefited. 
The conclusion from the year's experience is that though cure 
cannot be guaranteed by the use of this agent, it is probably 
the most powerful agent now known for combating this destruc- 
tive disease. Its use has been of further benefit to the admin- 
istration by making treatment of many of these cases feasible 
by isolation within the general wards, thus relieving congestion 
in the wards specially provided. 

At a later page of this report will be found an account of 
the work which the Board's committee on social service has car- 
ried on during the year with cases in the maternity wards. 
This work, an experiment at the outset, is rapidly adding proof 
to the axiom that an institution is never in itself, unaided, 
a cure for the problems of citizenship, but is at best but one 
link or step in a process of treatment which must involve pre- 
institution study and after-care. 

The number of children at this institution increases in steady 
ratio. So great has finally become the overcrowding that the 
Trustees this year ask for a building to house 100 boys. The 
Board withholds its approval from this proposal, believing it 
to be an improper development of the Infirmary. Some chil- 
dren there must be, but so far as proper classification will allow, 
they should be removed to special institutions. Consequently 
the Board again urges the establishment of an additional school 
for the feeble-minded and the immediate development of exist- 
ing schools to their maximum. This improvement would re- 
lieve the State Infirmary of many of the feeble-minded children. 
The Board also asks the establishment of a hospital for the 
treatment and temporary care of sick State minor wards. Su/?h 
a hospital, aside from filling a great need in the Board w^ork 
with children, would relieve the State Infirmary of a large 
number, now sent there because there is no other place for them. 

Mention has been made in previous reports of the complica- 
tion which arises in the functions of this already complex in- 
stitution by the presence of the insane. It is a fact that these

patients perform miicli of the labor of the institution, aiding in 
keeping the per capita cost at its present low level, besides de- 
riving from such employment considerable benefit to them- 
selves. But it is nevertheless time that the State's classification 
of the insane as a distinct group should be carried out so that 
the State Infirmary may turn all its energy to its more legiti- 
mate purposes. 

As appears from the increased estimate for maintenance, the 
Trustees seek to place all their employees, especially their nurses, 
upon a 48-hour per week basis. It is believed that higher effi- 
ciency, and consequently greater ultimate economy in admin- 
istration, will be thus secured. 

Including improvements above mentioned, the Trustees ask 
the following special appropriations, all of which, with the 
exception of the building for 100 boys, are approved by this 
Board : — 



1. Hot-water circulating system .... 

2. Mechanical handling of coal .... 

3. Four-inch pipe line from pumping station . 

4. A nurses' home, accommodations for 100 nurses 

5. A building for boys, accommodations for 100 boy

The items relating to water supply are repetitions of esti- 
mates not granted by the Legislature last year. In connection 
with its approval of these items, the Board believes that the 
request for an appropriation to extend and render more avail- 
able the cold water supply, refused by the Legislature last year, 
should also be repeated this year. The nurses' home would 
greatly enhance the effectiveness of the nursing staff, by better 
housing for the corps. The request is the result of overcrowd- 
ing in present quarters.

Classification of disciiarges: death.3, 115; removals, 5,148. 

Total valuation of plant, real and personal, $1,724,037.13. 
Value per unit of capacity, $556.14. 

Provides custodial care for persons of botli sexes committed 
bv the courts for drunkenness or vagrancy ; also almshouse care 
for indigent persons not chargeable to any city or town; and 
hospital care for insane male convicts. Persons committed for 
drunkenness are in almost all cases chronic drunkards. 

During the year, 7,877 persons have been cared for, 31 more 
than last year, but 316 less than in 1911. Largest daily census, 
2,706 ; smallest, 2,488 ; daily average, 2,592. Xormal capacity 
of plant, 3,100. Of the whole number under care, 6,140 were 
prisoners, 842 were paupers, and 895 were insane convicts. The 
total number of commitments was 4,681, of which 4,136, or 88.3 
per cent., were for drunkenness. Of these 4,681 persons com- 
mitted, 1,164, or 24.8 per cent., were returned for violation of 
parole; 70.2 per cent., or 3,286, of all the new commitments 
had served time at the State Farm before. Of all commitments, 
37.2 per cent, were made from Boston. These 4,681 commit- 
ments represent 2,190 separate individuals. A comparative 
classification of all commitments showing data for nine years

The total number of persons leaving the institution during 
the year, whether by death, discharge, or release on parole, was 
5,263. The deaths numbered 115. 

Out of an appropriation of $348,000, a total of $347,993.53 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, $108,615.03 was for salaries, wages, and

Appropriations of $800 for recording machinery, $4,000 for 
land, and $10,000 for additional water supply were granted in 
1913. Under these authorizations land has been acquired and 
wells driven. This work, with the necessary piping and con- 
nections, was advancing toward completion at the close of the 
year. The recording machinery authorized for the power plant 
has been installed. 

Other permanent improvements under way during the year 
have been the prison addition, the extension of the buildings for 
the insane, and the remodelling of the old chapel. The first of 
these is completed permitting greatly improved housing and 
classification of inmates. Operations upon the buildings for the 
insane were well advanced by the close of the year, while the 
remodelled chapel enclosure has been finished and is now in use. 

Unfavorable weather conditions have resulted in smaller crops 
of all the farm products, with an excess of labor in harvesting. 



36 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

In other aspects this institution reports steady gain. The gen- 
eral health of inmates has been excellent, marred neither by epi- 
demic nor accident. Commitments, however, appear to be on the 
increase, the total this year showing 4,681 as against 4,522 last 
year; and the proportion of those who had served time at the 
institution before was only slightly more, 70.2. per cent, as 
against 66.1 per cent, for the preceding year. 

It is hoped that the constant growth of the probation sys- 
tem with its emphasis upon larger parental responsibility, sup- 
plemented by the development of Norfolk State Hospital for the 
hopeful inebriate, will tend, with increasing effectiveness, to 
prevent chronic drunkenness. The community which permits 
this traffic in its weaker temperaments for a return in money 
should not draw back from the application of a small portion 
of such gains in an attempt to save and prevent a part of the 
wreckage. 

The Trustees make the following estimates for special pur- 
poses, all of which are approved by this Board : — 

1. For additional sewage filtration beds .... $4,000 00 

2. For indicating and recording instruments, to detect 

waste and promote operating efficiency in the central 

heating and power plant ...... 2,200 00 

3. For consolidating in the central plant heating for alms- 

house, watchmen's building and two farmhouses . 7,500 00 



$13,700 00

habitues from Foxborough State Hospital has been deferred 
until the spring of 1914. By that time the service building 
and other of the necessary portions of the new plant will have 
been completed. Two cottages at the Oval, housing 25 patients 
each, have been fully occupied since August. 

During the year there has been a daily average of 58.25 
inebriates and drug-users in residence at Norfolk State Hos- 
pital. The corresponding average of the same class at Fox- 
borough State Hospital has been 156.64. All of the patients 
at Norfolk have been occupied in developing the new plant. 
They have dug the trenches, cleared and excavated building 
sites, and reclaimed sprout land for tillage purposes. In addi- 
tion, the patients at Foxborough have made the cement bricks 
for the buildings in the hospital group. 

During this year, as well as last, the functions of the new 
hospital are hardly capable of consideration apart from the 
Foxborough institution. The system of after care for patients 
released on parole, which has applied during the past year to 
both institutions, without distinction, shows encouraging results 
for the four-year period just closed. During that time, as ap- 
pears from the superintendent's report, 2,261 inebriates and 
drug habitues were released to the out-patient department after 
having been in the institution a sufficient length of time for 
classification. Such transfer to the out-patient department is 
effected with the patient's consent and with his promise of 
co-operation. Of the total number, 631, or 27 per cent., are 
now at work and doing well. They show themselves to have 
been unmistakably benefited by the hospital treatment. Six 
hundred and eighty-five, or 30 per cent, show no improvement ; 
836, or 37 per cent., were not located; 74, or 3 per cent, have 
died; and 35, or 1 per cent., have become insane. If the 836 
cases not located were excluded from the total under considera- 
tion, the percentage of improvement would be 44. It is be- 
lieved that the new institution, with its vastly greater oppor- 
tunities for self-help by the patients, will greatly strengthen 
the foundation upon which the out-patient work is based and 
consequently increase its effectiveness. 

At the beginning of the year some of the buildings for which 
appropriations were granted by the Legislature of 1912 were 



38 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

still in process of construction. At the close of the year the 
six cottages at the Oval had been completed, and the hospital 
building, the two hospital cottages, and the service and in- 
dustrial buildings, all at the hospital group, were nearing com- 
pletion. The spur track for which $2,000 was granted was 
carried as far as the service building. Connections for hot 
and cold water supply and for sewage have been made coin- 
cidentally with construction. 

For the coming year the Trustees ask appropriations for the 
following special improvements, all of which are approved by 
the Board : — 

1. Six cottages and equipment for men, each cottage 

accommodating 25 persons $51,000 00 

2. Chapel and recreation building 15,000 00 

3. Extension to power house and equipment . . . 12,000 00 

4. Underground piping, conduit, insulation, etc. . . 20,000 00 

5. Outside wiring 2,900 00 

6. Officers' quarters and equipment 5,700 00 

7. Congregate dining room and recreation building . . 18,500 00 

8. Cottage and equipment for women, the cottage accom- 

modating 17 women 8,500 00 

9. Barn 6,000 00 

10. Extension of coal trestle and spur track . . . 4,000 00 

11. Sewer and water construction 2,500 00 

12. Additional land 10.000 00 



$156,100 00 



The six cottages would form a part of the hospital group. 
The chapel and recreation hall would provide a common place 
of meeting in this group for religious services and necessary 
assembly. 

The power-house extension restores that unit to the di- 
mensions originally recommended. In its present form it is 
inadequate. The three other improvements for the hospital 
group are the small house for medical officers, the barn for 
horses and the storing of ambulance and vehicles, and the coal 
trestle. The last is an extension of the spur track, contemplated 
at the time of the original appropriation.

THE STATE TRAINING SCHOOLS. 

The Lyman School for Boys at Westborough, the Industrial 
School for Boys at Shirley, and the Industrial School for Girls 
at Lancaster are the three industrial schools provided for by 
the State for juvenile delinquents. They are administered by 
a single Board of Trustees known as the Trustees of the Massa- 
chusetts Training Schools, with offices at 274 Boylston Street, 
Boston. 

Boys under fifteen years of age may be committed to the 
Lyman School, and under eighteen years of age to the school 
at Shirley. Girls under seventeen ^o to the institution at Lan- 
caster. All persons committed remain under the control of the 
Trustees during minority. For greater efficiency in adminis- 
tration, the Lyman School cares for boys under fifteen, while 
those over that as-e go to Shirley. 

The total number of persons under care in these three insti- 
tutions during the year was 2,182. Of these, 1,049 were boys 
under fifteen, all at Lyman School, 570 were boys over fifteen, 
at Shirley, and 563 were girls, cared for at Lancaster. 

In the three schools there were, at the beginning of the year, 
867 inmates, namely, 568 boys and 299 girls. One thousand 
three hundred and fifteen were received during the year, and 
1.258 went out either by discharge or upon parole, leaving 924 
on :N'ovember 30, 1913, viz., 619 boys and 305 girls. 

As noted last year, the numbers in these three schools are 
rapidly increasing, a fact which has forced the trustees of 
Lyman School to ask for a new cottage. They ask for exten- 
sive construction at the Shirley School as a part of the develop- 
ment of that new institution. 

The combined appropriations for the maintenance of the 
three schools totalled $260,730. On this account, $266,782.73 
was expended, deficits of $2,999.60 and $3,053.34 occurring at 
Lyman School and at the Industrial School for Girls respec- 
tively. Subtracting all receipts from sources other than the 
State Treasury, the net cost of maintenance to the Common- 
wealth was $265,618.42. Details of administration and cost 
are considered under each school separately, as follows : —

quent boys under fifteen years of age. Cottage plan. 
. During the year 1,049 cases have been under care, repre- 
senting 832 separate individuals. This total number of cases 
is 115 more than in 1912 and 2-15 more than in 1911. The 
number in the school at the beginning of the year was 385 ; ad- 
missions numbered 664; discharges, 609; remainder at the close 
of the year, 440. The daily average number of inmates was 
408.39, exceeding last year's average by 46.7. 

The list of causes of admission in the 664 cases received dur- 
ing the year was as follows: absconders returned, 118; assault, 
1; breaking and entering, 54; delinquent child, 86; false fire 
alarm, 2 ; larceny, 60 ; returned or transferred from other in- 
stitutions, not penal, 56 ; returned or transferred from other 
institutions, penal, 1; returned from place of parole, 235; 
setting fires, 1 ; trespassing, 1 ; carrying firearms, 1 ; man- 
slaughter, 1 ; transferred by the State Board of Charity, 9 ; 
stubbornness, 34 ; vagrancy, 4. Two hundred and fifty-four of 
the foregoing cases were committed by the courts. Of this 
number, 131 had been arrested before and 53 had been inmates 
of other institutions. Fourteen per cent, were of American 
parentage; 48 per cent, of foreign parentage, and 10 per cent, 
were unknown. Thirty-one of these boys were foreign born, 
while 222 were born in the United States. The nativity of 
one was unascertained. 

There has been a steady growth in numbers at the school dur- 
ing the past year. The average number was 408 as compared 
with 358 in 1912-13. The present equipment is capable of 
caring adequately for 360 boys, and the problems of adminis- 
tration are greatly increased by overcrowding. Discipline is 
more difficult to maintain and suffers seriously because proper 
classification is impaired when there is such scarcity of room. 

The cottage at Berlin for the younger boys has been com- 
pelled to handle 82 boys during the year, whereas, 50 is about 



Parti.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 41 

the number that can be put through the course of training 
with reasonable success. The younger boys are placed out, as 
a rule, directly from Berlin, and if their stay has been long 
enough to insure them a proper amount of preparation for 
normal family life they are saved from being sent to the main 
school. In so far as this plan succeeds, the purpose of Berlin 
cottage is fulfilled, but the chance of success is greatly dimin- 
ished when more boys must be cared for than can be properly 
handled. As the number of commitments steadily increases, 
the logic of the situation demands another cottage for this class. 

While there is every advantage in establishing isolated cot- 
tages for the care of the very young boys, the time is ripe to 
consider whether the school proper has grown as large as one 
institution for the care of juvenile delinquents should be per- 
mitted to grow, in justice to the magnitude and importance of 
the problem. As the numbers increase the personal attention 
possible to be given to the individual by the superintendent 
becomes more limited, and the boy must of necessity be left 
more and more to the care of the subordinates. This is a great 
loss to the boy and defeats the purpose of the school, which 
succeeds or fails largely as the trained expert has the oppor- 
tunity to come into intimate contact with the individual. 

There have been no radical changes in policy during the 
year and no important additions to the academic or industrial 
resources. The presence of feeble-minded and defective de- 
linquents is a continuing factor and an embarrassing problem, 
which can only be solved by the provision of more facilities for 
the care of these classes. 

Despite the fact that the physical condition of the boys ad- 
mitted to the school is generally very poor, the school has been 
in good health. There have been no epidemics and only the 
normal number of accidents and minor ailments. 

With an appropriation of $114,000, a total of $116,999.60 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution, creating 
a deficit of $2,999.60. Of the amount expended $47,120.73 
was for salaries, wages, and labor; all other expenses, $69.- 
878.87. Weekly per capita cost of maintenance computed on 
expenses less sales and refunds from maintenance, $5,465.

The ice house provided last year by the Legislature has been 
constructed and is in service. The total expended out of ap- 
propriations for special purposes was $981.08. 

The Trustees make the following requests for appropriations 
for special purposes : — 

1. Milk house and creamery building $1,800 00 

2. New cottage for 30 boys and attendants, and for heat- 

ing, furnishing, and equipment 22,000 00 

3. Extension and repair of cow barn 1,850 00 

4. New boiler, engine, electrical apparatus, and repairs 

for power plant .' . . 13,000 00 

5. Additional equipment for printing shop and for dairy 

equipment 1,300 00 



539,950 00 



The items relating to the dairy and equipment represent 
much-needed improvement in the conditions under which the 
milk supply is produced. The request for an additional cottage 
arises out of pressing necessity, since the numbers at the school 
are now beyond the facilities for their care, and the present 
rapid rate of increase shows no sign of abatement. The burdens 
upon the heating and lighting units in the power plant have 
grown with the expansion of the institution until enlargement 
has become not only advisable but urgent for purposes of safety 
as well as efficiency. The request is based upon careful survey 
by competent engineers.

During the year 570 cases have been cared for, representing 
215 separate individuals. This total number of cases is 58 
more than in the preceding year. The number in the school at 
the beginning of the year was 183. Admissions numbered 387 ; 
discharges, 391; remainder at the close of the year, 179. The 
largest daily census was 192 ; the smallest, 172 ; daily average, 
182.26. 

The list of causes of admission in the 387 cases received 
during the year was as follows : absconders returned, 54 ; as- 
sault, 2 ; breaking and entering, 29 ; breaking and entering and 
larceny, 20 ; cruelty to animals, 1 ; delinquent child, 29 ; dis- 
turbing the peace, 1 ; drunkenness, 3 ; failure to report while on 
probation, 1 ; forgery, 1 ; idle and disorderly, 7 ; larceny, 58 ; 
larceny and breaking glass, 1 ; receiving stolen goods, 1 ; re- 
turned after leave of absence, 13 ; returned from place or 
parole, 89 ; returned or transferred from institutions, penal, 
20; returned or transferred from institutions, not penal, 11; 
ringing in false alarm of fire, 1 ; robbery, 2 ; stubborn child, 31 ; 
taking and using automobile without consent of owner, 1 ; va- 
grancy, 5 ; violating rules of a training school, 1 ; wantonly 
breaking glass, 1. 

Two hundred of the foregoing cases were committed by the 
courts. Of the boys thus committed, 123 had been arrested 
before and 58 had been inmates of other institutions. Twenty- 
nine, or 14 per cent., were foreign bom and 84 were unknown. 
Of the remaining 86 per cent., born in the United States, 149, 
or 74.5 per cent., were natives of Massachusetts. The average 
population of 182.26 exceeds the average of the preceding year 
by 4+. 

Of the 391 boys discharged or released during the year, 84 
were placed at occupations, on parole; 21 were sent to other 
institutions for custodial care, and 15 went to other institu- 
tions, not penal. 

The year has witnessed many physical improvements in the 
school property, among which are the completion of one new 
cottage and the partial construction of another. Eive hundred 
yards of concrete walks have been laid, and much grading about 
the buildings has been done, giving the school an appearance 
in harmony with its beautiful site. Other minor improve- 



44 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

ments, such as the building of a refrigerator, the excavation of 
a cellar under cottage Xo. 2, for the purpose of installing a 
recreation room for use in bad weather, and relocating baths 
and toilet conveniences, were either finished or under way at the 
end of the year. 

These activities sensed to give employment to the boys, as all 
the sand, stone, and gravel used in construction were found 
upon the school's land, and all the imskilled work was per- 
formed by them. 

Three hundred feet of water and sewer pipe were laid during 
the year. The north bam has been remodelled to house all the 
cattle under one roof. The improvement makes this depart- 
ment more efficient and easier of administration. 

The general kitchen has been wholly rearranged, with great 
benefit in economy and cleanliness. 

Xumbers have been high during the year, being constantly in 
excess of the capacity of the dormitories, and there were many 
unfilled applications from the courts when the year closed. 

Most of the boys committed to Shirley are disinclined to 
work, this general attitude being presiunably one of the chief 
causes that finally results in their appearance before the court. 
The regular habits of living imposed upon the boys at the 
school, the careful physical oversight provided, and the program 
of work, study and play, corrects this condition temporarily, at 
least, in most cases, and permanently in a gratifying number. 

Different groups are assigned to the trades which are selected 
for them by the superintendent after consultation with parents 
and a study of the individual. Boys are put to painting, black- 
smithing, carpentering, or the different branches of farming, 
as they seem most qualified. While it is not possible to make 
a finished tradesman in the time usually spent at the school, it 
is possible to make a boy sufficiently efficient in his particular 
branch to make him valuable in his trade. But if nothing more 
were done with these boys than to develop in them habits of 
industry and healthful living the school would be doing a most 
useful work. 

The minimum age limit of admission is fifteen, and there- 
fore all the boys are above school age ; but there are among 
them some illiterates and manv who are backward. These have 



PartL] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 45 

their deficiencies supplied in the schoolroom. Exercises in 
composition and penmanship for all the boys are parts of the 
educational program, and a taste for good books is encouraged 
in a practical way. 

E,ecreation in the foiTti of outdoor sports is an important 
factor in the system of training, and the school baseball and 
football teams not only are the media for healthful enjoyment, 
but they also pro^'ide a natural avenue of contact with the world 
outside the school by competitive series with teams from 
neighboring towns and schools. 

During the year the boys gave a minstrel show and repeated 
it in near-by towns. The band is an imponant feature in en- 
tertainment and has played for the open-air concerts in the 
town. 

While there are always infractions of the rules necessitating 
recourse to punishment, the spirit of graduates of the school 
may justly be gathered from the fact that there is an alumni 
association which holds an annual reunion in Boston in the 
winter and a field day at the school in summer. Large nimibers 
are in attendance at each. 

Out of an appropriation of $68,230 a total of $68,229.79 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended $28,007.84 was for salaries, wages, and labor; 
all other expenses, $40,221.95. Weekly per capita cost of 
maintenance, computed on expenses less sales and refunds from 
maintenance, $7,173. Total receipts from all sources other 
than the State treasury, $193.15. Xet cost of maintenance to 
the Commonwealth, $68,036.64. Ratio of daily average num- 
ber of persons employed to daily average number of inmates, 
1 to 4. Eor detailed analysis of receipts and expenditures, 
see pp. 69-80. 

The year closed with one stone and concrete cottage for 30 
boys practically completed, and another of the same type in proc- 
ess of construction. In addition, several minor improvements 
have been effected, namely, moving and remodelling a small 
house for a cottage tenement, building two silos and a chicken 
house, extending sidewalks and water-pipe connections, and the 
extension of sewer beds. 

The Trustees ask this vear for the following: four items of ex- 



46 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

tension and permanent improvement, all of which are approved 
by this Board : — 

1. Central building, providing chapel, schoolroomSj central 

offices, fireproof vault, and assembling and exercising 

rooms $90,000 00 

2. Heating and furnishing and equipping cottage for 30 

boys, now being built 3,000 00 

3. Two cottages for 30 boys each and attendants, and for 

furnishing, heating, and equipping the same . . 49,000 00 

4. Moving, relocating, and making repairs on large hay 

bam 1.550 00 



$143,550 00 



Of these requests, the second supplies an omission in last 
year's appropriation, while the fourth seeks to eliminate a dan- 
gerous fire risk by removing an old Shaker barn now located 
in the centre of the institution group. The central building is 
a vital necessity in the housing, discipline and constructive pur- 
pose of this institution. Makeshift accommodations thus far 
found in the buildings of the old '' settlement '' are so far out- 
grown by the rapid increase in court commitments that proper 
school, chapel, and assembly provision is no longer available 
without a central biiilding. The structure as planned would 
house the administrative officers in addition. 

The two cottages asked for are planned after thorough study 
of requirements and methods in economical housing and efficient 
care, discipline, and treatment. They represent the least 
amount of extension in the capacity of the school necessary to 
meet the pressure of numbers.

number of cases is 16 more than in 1912 and 32 more than in 
1911. The number in the school at the beginning of the year 
was 299; admissions during the year, 264; discharged, includ- 
ing all persons going out of the school, 258 ; remaining Xovem- 
ber 30, 1913, 305. The largest daily census was 332; smallest, 
288 ; daily average, 308. 

The list of causes of admission in the 264 cases received 
during the year was as follows : common night walker, 2 ; de- 
linquency, 2 ; delinquent child, 5 ; disorderly conduct, 1 ; dis- 
obedient, 2 ; drunkenness, assault and battery, 1 ; fornication, 
10 ; idle and disorderly, 6 ; idle and lascivious, 1 ; idle, vagrant 
and vicious, 2 ; idleness, 13 ; larceny, 8 ; lewdness, 10 ; lewd and 
lascivious, 2 ; lewd, wanton and lascivious, 1 ; returned from 
place or parole, 75; returned from hospital, 11; returned for 
visit to the school, 32 ; runaways, 1 ; stubbornness, 64 ; stubborn 
and disobedient, 2 ; unnatural act, 1 ; vagrancy, 2 ; vicious and 
wanton, 1 ; waywardness, 2 ; witnessing at court, 7. 

Of the 258 girls discharged or released during the year, 3 
ran away; 188 were released on parole to relatives or to families 
for employment; 7 went to witness in court; 24 from visiting 
the school; 2 to temporary place; 2 to board; 19 were trans- 
ferred to other institutions, not penal ; 8 were sent to other in- 
stitutions, penal; and 4 became of age at the school and were 
thereby discharged. 

This school receives girls up to the age of seventeen years, 
who are committed by the court or transferred by the State 
Board of Charity as delinquents. There are an administration 
building, a chapel, a small hospital, a storehouse, dairy and 
farm buildings, and ten cottages. One of these cottages is in 
the town of Bolton, a mile and a half from the school, and is 
used as a disciplinary house for those girls who get along badly 
in the main school. 

Twenty-nine of the 188 girls paroled last year went imme- 
diately to parents or relatives. One hundred and fifty were 
placed at vrork for wages. An examination of the records of 
the 119 girls who passed out of the care of the parole depart- 
ment of the past year shows that of 72 it could be said that 
their conduct was good; of 9 it was bad; and of 19 it was 
unknown. In 19 cases it was impossible to classifv. Thus 60

per cent, are known to be turning out well, while less than one- 
tenth are known to have conducted themselves badly. 

The proportion of girls of low mental grade has increased, 
although this condition promises some degree of alleviation soon 
through the. opening of additional buildings at the Wrentham 
State School. This relief is only temporary, however, and the 
often reiterated arguments for removal of the feeble-minded 
from the Industrial School still remain unanswerable from the 
point of view of the interests of the normal as well as the 
feeble-minded girl. 

During the year a grading system based on merit has been 
introduced and is proving successful. The new girl is first 
placed in the receiving cottage and from there transferred to 
the first grade. She is promoted to the honor grade if her con- 
duct warrants it, and in this grade she is entitled to many 
highly valued privileges. If her conduct is not good she may 
be sent from the first grade to the second grade where she loses 
all privileges. A girl in the honor class may by misconduct 
also suffer transfer to the second grade. There are two monthly 
entertainments, one for the honor grade and one for the first 
and honor grades combined. These entertainments are a great 
aid to good conduct, as they are highly esteemed breaks in the 
routine. 

Another innovation during the year is the rearrangement of 
the schedule of studies. Formerly classes were confined to the 
afternoon, but at present there are morning sessions as well. 
The class hours are from 9 a.m. to 11.45 a.m. and from 2 p.m. 
to 4.50 p.M.^ and all girls are enabled to have one daily period 
in the classroom and one of industrial training. 

All the girls are assembled at 8.30 a.m. for short exercises 
in the chapel, from which they start on their program for the 
day. 

Discipline at the school has greatly improved, as indicated 
by the fact that there were but two runaways for the entire 
year. 

Many improvements have been made in the buildings and 
grounds and have been the means of providing healthful out- 
door exercise for the girls, whose physical condition has been 
very good for the year. 



PartL] GEXER.-VI. WORK OF THE BOARD. 49 

The most important and helpful material improvement is the 
installation of electric lighting, displacing the oil lamps which 
have been for years a potential danger to life and property. A 
new and efficient telephone system has been completed, and 
Tisher cottage has been provided with a new heating system. 

With an appropriation of $78,500, a total of $81,553.34 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amoimt expended. $35,761.10 was for salaries, wages, and 
labor; all other expenses, $45,792.24. Weekly per capita cost 
of maintenance, computed on expenses, less sales and refunds 
from maintenance. $5,061. Total receipts from all sources

The central school building, for which an appropriation of 
$40,000 was made last year, is under way and will be ready 
for occupancy during the current year. 

The Trustees make the following requests for special appro- 
priations, all of which, excepting the fifth, are approved by this 
Board : — 

1. High-pressure water system connecting with town water 

supply for fire protection $5,340 00 

2. Survey of school grounds, showing exact location of all 

buildings, underground water and sewer pipes and 
underground wires and conduits, and for outhne plan

other buildings to replace worn-out furnaces . . 11.500 00 

$21,790 00 



50 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

The first three items represent good economies. The first 
would provide fire protection which is not now adequately sup- 
plied. High pressure is ready at hand ; the appropriation would 
merely provide necessary connections. The survey of grounds 
is an essential at all institutions. The completion of sidewalks 
represents the end of an improvement that has been in progress 
for some time. 

The institution stands in great need of a central heating plant. 
The request would provide the first unit of such a system; 

The item for finishing off a part of the second story of the 
infirmary and for the construction of a small addition thereto 
is disapproved by this Board, on the ground that '^ in the 
opinion of this Board it is inadvisable to finish off the attic 
of this building for the care of infirmary patients, and inex- 
pedient to impair the capacity of the existing infirmary to the 
extent that must be done in building stairways to meet the new 
improvement." 

MASSACHUSETTS HOSPITAL SCHOOL.

Total valuation of plant, real and personal, $316,072.13. 
IsTormal capacity of plant, 270. Value per unit of capacity, 
$1,170.64. 

Provides care and schooling for crippled and deformed chil- 
dren. 

During the year 295 cases, representing the same number 
of separate children, have been under care. This total is 25 
more than in 1912, and 32 more than in 1911. 

On December 1, 1912, there were 238 children in the school. 
Fifty-seven new cases were admitted and 45 discharged during 
the year. The maximum number at any one time was 257, 
the minimum, 202, and the daily average, 235.83, an increase 
of 7.27 over the preceding year. The average age at time of 
admittance was seven years and eleven months. 

All of the children admitted were certified by physicians as 
being physically unsuitable for instruction in the public schools. 
Twenty-six of these were cases of bone tuberculosis, 17 of 
various forms of paralysis, 14 of rickets, malnutrition, and de- 
formities. 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 51 

The new admissions have been of a higher mental grade and 
more amenable to orthopoedic treatment than the average of 
those formerly admitted. This condition is probably due to 
better classification of applications and more knowledge and 
confidence on the part of the public in the school. At the out- 
set it was necessary to admit a number of children from alms- 
houses and other institutions, a large proportion of whom proved 
to be mentally deficient. It is interesting to note, also, that as 
the institution grows the number of girls among the new ad- 
missions increases, which is another indication of the growth 
of public confidence in the school. 

Twenty-four out of the 45 discharges during the year had 
been brought to a condition where they were capable of self- 
support or could be classed with normal children. Xine of the 
discharges were feeble-minded and unable to take advantage 
of the opportunities offered by the school. Seven were released 
reluctantly, due to insistent pressure on the part of parents. In 
one case a hopelessly paralyzed boy was discharged after he 
had been taught to read, enabling him to enjoy practically the 
only pleasure of which he was capable. There were two deaths 
during the year. 

Those discharged capable of self-support were competent to 
take up the following occupations : clerical and telephone opera- 
tor, 1 boy; steam laundry assistants, 2 boys; cook and domestic 
work, 2 girls; messenger, 1 boy; carpentry and woodworking 
machines, 1 boy; cobbling and leather work, 1 boy; farming 
and gardening, 2 boys. Eive of this number were graduated 
from the grades and received the school diploma. The others 
recovered before finishing the school course, or were beyond 
compulsory school age, and were better adapted for suitable 
employment than for further academic instruction. 

During the year another schoolroom has been opened and an 
additional teacher employed. The average time for instruction 
in the school remains the same, one and one-half hours daily. 
All the school work is done in the open air, the windows in the 
two inside rooms being kept constantly open except when the 
weather forbids, and the outdoor rooms are in service during 
the entire year. 



52 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

The assembly hall has added greatly to the comfort, enter- 
taimnent, and education of the children since its opening, and 
has been the scene of many enjoyable gatherings in addition to 
its use as a chapel for various religious exercises. The children 
have given a number of plays, a minstrel show, and musical 
entertainments, while the brass band has given a number of 
concerts. There is also among the girls a guitar and mandolin 
club formed during the year, which promises additional enjoy- 
ment and instruction to the girls. The library which is con- 
nected with the assembly hall is open daily, and is very generally 
used under the supervision of one or another of the teaching 
staff. Plans are now being made to co-ordinate the use of the 
library with the school work. 

Recreation in the open is one of the great factors in the up- 
building of the health of these children; this feature has been 
further emphasized during the year. 

The close of this year shows the practical completion of the 
school as contemplated by the act of establishment passed in 
1904. The girls' cottage now under construction will provide 
accommodations for 30, meeting the requirements of the act. 
The original appropriation was $300,000, and it is expected 
that provision for 300 children will be made within the appro- 
priation. The school has developed slowly because of its experi- 
mental nature, and every new step while carefully thought out, 
was tentative, the purpose in the Trustees' minds being to build 
up an institution that would develop health, self-reliance and 
capacity for some degree, at least, of self-support in the chil- 
dren, and not have it become a mere repository for the crippled 
and physically handicapped. As the years go on this purpose 
appears to be measurably accomplished, and the numbers who 
go out from the school able to take part in the ordinary activi- 
ties of life gradually increase. 

Out of an appropriation of $73,614, a total of $68,807.94 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, $30,283.37 was for salaries, wages, and 
labor; all other expenses, $38,524.57. Weekly per capita cost 
of maintenance computed on expenses less sales and refunds 
from maintenance, $5,583. Total receipts from all sources other 
than the State treasury, $39,720.42. 'Net cost of maintenance

The Trustees ask this year for $2,700 for the purchase of cows 
and dairy equipment. The new cow bam is now ready for oc- 
cupancy. The request is approved by the Board. 

THE STATE TUBERCULOSIS SAXATORIA. 

The Board's supervision of tuberculosis hospitals covers the 
Rutland, Lakeville, Xorth Reading and Westfield State sana- 
toria, and the tuberculosis wards at the State Infirmary. The 
four separate institutions are administered by one Board of 
Trustees, the Trustees of Hospitals for Consumptives. 

During the year these four institutions treated 2,287 cases, 
with a combined normal capacity of 951 patients, and a daily 
average population of 904.01. 

Of the total number cared for, 872 were in residence at the 
beginning of the year. The 1,415 admissions during the year 
were ofi'set by the 1,351 discharges, leaving 936 on November 
30, 1913. 

Of the 1,415 cases admitted, 232 were classed as incipient; 
482 as moderately advanced; 676 as advanced; 8 as non-tuber- 
cular : and 17 as undetermined. Seven hundred and sixty-three 
were males; 652 females. 

The discharges were classified as follows: disease arrested, 
356; condition improved. 402; condition not improved, 221; 
non-tubercular, 8 ; died, 236 ; unclassified because of shortness 
of stay, 128. Thus 758, or 56.1 per cent., of all the discharged 
cases that were considered were sent away either with the disease 
apparently arrested or with condition improved. The corre- 
sponding percentage for last year was 63.3. 

Assembling the children at Westfield has progressed rapidly. 
The new children's ward with accommodations for 60 patients 
has been completed and is now occupied. 

The after-care and following up of discharged patients in- 
augurated a year ago has been carried on with increasing vigor 
during the year just closed. This work forms an essential part 
of the educational purpose of the sanatoriimi.

Separate report is not made upon the tuberculosis department 
of the State Infinnary. It is considered under the general head-

During the year 794 cases have been under care, representing 
the same number of separate individuals. This total is 74 less 
than in 1912 and 87 less than in 1911. Of the whole number, 
345 were in residence at the beginning of the year. The re- 
maining 449 were admitted under the following classification, 
based upon the ascertained progress of the disease: incipient, 
161, or 35.86 per cent. ; moderately advanced, 212, or 47.22 
per cent. ; advanced, 63, or 14.03 per cent. ; found to be non- 
tubercular, 6 ; not determined, 7. Of the new cases, males 
numbered 225; females, 224. 

The discharges numbered 438, namely, 223 males and 215 
females, classified according to conditions as follows: disease 
arrested, 161, or 36.7 per cent. ; improved, 145, or 33.1 per 
cent. ; not improved 58, or 13.2 per cent. ; non-tubercular, 5 ; 
died, 36, or 8.2 per cent. ; unclassified because of shortness of 
stay, 33, or 7.5 per cent. 

The average daily census was 348. The average for 1912 was 
346. Average duration of stay of patients, two hundred and 
fifty-four days. The corresponding average for 1912 was two

On September 29 Dr. Bartlett, superintendent since June, 
1910, resigned, and was succeeded by Elliott Washburn, M.D. 

On Marcb 17 fire broke out in the engine room, probably 
caused by defective insulation, and damaged the electrical ma- 
chinery and the interior of the engine room to the extent of 
$5,000. Fortunately, the plant was not crippled beyond tem- 
porary repair, so that the patients suffered no hardship. 

An improvement of importance during the year has been the 
completion of the new horse barn. The total expended out of 
appropriations for special purposes was $9,457.05. The Trus- 
tees this year ask for appropriations for special purposes as fol- 
lows : — 

1. Watchman's electric clock system $480 00 

2. Removing old bam 600 00 

3. New poultry houses 1,000 00 

4. Water supply 35,000 00 

$37,080 00 

Items 1 and 2 are important for the safety of the patients, the 
first by insuring protection while the institution sleeps, the sec- 
ond by removing a fire risk. The third item represents normal 
expansion of the poultry farm. The last results from study by 
the Trustees and this Board of the advisability of an inde- 
pendent water supply, and arises out of conditions of financing 
the present supply, which are increasingly unfavorable to the 
Commonwealth.

During the year 501 cases have been under care. Of this 
number, 178 were in residence at the beginning of the vear. 
The remaining 323 were admitted under the following classifi- 
cation, based upon the ascertained progress of the disease: in- 
cipient, 14, or 4.33 per cent. ; moderately advanced, 62, or 19.20 
per cent. ; advanced, 247, or 76.47 per ceiit. Sex of patients 
admitted : males, 178 ; females, 145. 

The discharges numbered 320, namely, 176 males and 144

Average duration of stay of patients, two hundred and three 
days. The corresponding average for 1912 was one hundred 
and seventy-one, and for 1911, one hundred and sixty-seven. 

Out of an appropriation of $82,865 a total of $82,457.55 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, $33,421.43 was for salaries, wages, and 
labor; all other expenses, $49,036.12. Weekly per capita cost 
of maintenance computed on expenses less sales and refunds 
from maintenance, $8.80. Total receipts from all sources other 
than the State treasury, $21,918.14. Iset cost of maintenance

tures, see pp. 69-80. The Trustees estimate the sum of $88,- 
591.28 for maintenance in 1914 (see table at p. 26). 

A new pavilion and the extension to the dining-room ell of the 
administration building, the two large improvements granted 
by the Legislature of 1913, were near completion at the close of 
the year, but neither was ready for occupancy. Minor improve- 
ments have consisted in the betterment of walks and roads, the 
clearing of land, and the completion of better facilities for stor- 
ing coal and other supplies. The total expended from appro- 
priations for special purposes was $7,818.97. For the coming 
year the Trustees submit the following estimates for special 
purposes, all of which have been approved by the Board : —

Two major improvements — a pavilion for 30 patients and 
additions to the men's and women's wards — were granted by 
the Legislature of 1913, the funds for which became available 
late in the spring. Work was begun simultaneously, and both 
are expected to be ready for occupancy by January 1, 1914. 
A shack to accommodate 12 patients was also built during the 
year. The funds for this improvement were taken from the 
maintenance appropriation. 

Future improvements now needed are set out by the Trustees

The request for an independent milk supply is repeated from 
la^t year. The advisability of independence and the economy 
of institution supply are readily apparent. 

Additions to the administration building and the coal trestle, 
and additional sewage disposal, would increase facilities to 
meet a growth in the institution that is already overtaxing the 
present plant.

ployed to daily average number of inmates. 1 to 2.4. For de- 
tailed analysis of receipts and expenditures, see pp. 69-80. 

The Trustees estimate the sum of $127,000 for maintenance 
in 1914 (see table at p. 26). 

The most important improvement of the year has been the 
new power plant and laundry building. By the completion of 
this building the efficiency of the plant is greatly increased, and 
a dangerous fire hazard, arising from the old location of the 
power plant under the main building, has been eliminated. 

The Legislature of last year granted an appropriation for 
a children's ward, but work was not begun until September. At 
the close of the year construction had advanced rapidly, and the 
building, which is to house 60 children, is expected to be ready 
for occupancy by February 1, 1914. 

This Board approves estimates of the Trustees for special 
improvements in 1914, as follows: — 

1. Coal trestle, — concrete floor and retaining wall . . $3,926 43 

2. Grading, concrete walks and street lighting . . . 2,500 00 

3. Fireproof vault 1,500 00 



$7,926 43 



These items, though minor in importance, are necessary to 
the proper maintenance of the institution. The fireproof vault 
is sought in compliance with existing statutes.

1911. Of the number cared for, 15 were in residence at the 
beginning of the year, 2 were admitted and 2 were discharged, 
leaving 15 patients on November 30, 1913. Of the cases dis- 
charged, 1 died and 1 was released under the authority of 
chapter 73, Acts of 1913 (see p. 14, ante), as no longer a 
menace to the public health. The two cases admitted were 
males, both suffering from the tubercular form of the disease. 
One case, suffering from the anaesthetic form, was released 
after examination and before admission to the hospital. 

Of the patients remaining in the hospital at the close of this 
year, 11 were suffering from the disease in the tubercular 
form, 2 in the anaesthetic and 2 in the mixed forms. Seven 
are known to have had other communicable diseases before com- 
ing to the hospital. Of this number 5 had had smallpox. The 
average age of the patients was thirty-eight years; 10 were 
married ; 4 of the total were females. All of the patients, with 
one exception, were of foreign race and nationality; the ex- 
ception had English blood, but was foreign born. Four pa- 
tients gave their birthplaces as the United States, all being 
Chinese. The races represented are as follows : Italian, 1 ; 
Portuguese, 4 ; Chinese, 4 ; Russian, 3 ; Lettish, 1 ; Japanese, 
1: English (British West Indies). 1. 

Continuing the policy of placing this institution on a hos- 
pital basis, instead of an isolation colony, the Board has been 
striving this year to provide every patient with expert medical 
service and the attendance of a hospital nurse at all times for 
this purpose. Two nurses have now been added to the staff. 
The additional service has increased the confidence of the pa- 
tient and lightened the heavy burden of care. At the same 
time it has made it possible for the resident physician to devote 
more time to an intensive study of each case. 

The year's experiment with the plan of keeping the hospital 
in close relationship with institutions engaged in scientific re- 
search has exceeded expectations. The studies carried on at 
this hospit-al are likely in the near future to add much to the 
world's knowledge of a disease which for ages has menaced the 
human race. 

With this experiment at Penikese in mind the Board is all 
the more convinced that everv State institution for the care and

treatment of sick or defective persons should be made a station 
for intensive scientific research. Many institutions of learning 
stand ready to furnish talent of a high order whenever the State 
will make clear that it welcomes research. 

Several improvements have been made during the year, 
resulting in better methods of caring for patients. The new 
administration building, which replaces a building burned in 
January, 1912, houses the administrative force much more 
safely and comfortably than did the old wooden structure. 
Repairs have been made on the barn and sheds, so that these 
buildings are now staunch enough to withstand the high winter 
vtdnds. Quarters for the nurses have been fitted up in the old 
hospital building, in such manner that necessary contact with 
patients is lessened and the danger of infection accordingly 
somewhat reduced. The conditions under which the administra- 
tive staff must work are, however, still far from satisfactory. 
Facilities must be had for carrying on cleansing and treatment 
under a centralized system before the staff can be safeguarded 
properly. Such centralization is sought in the Board's request 
for a dispensary and hospital building, referred to in a later 
paragraph. 

The small laboratory in the administration building fitted 
up early in the year affords excellent facilities for preliminary 
tests and experiments, which are later supplemented by further 
study in the laboratories of the Harvard Medical School. 

One constant source of danger from fire has been greatly 
reduced by the installation of electric lights. This improvement 
eliminates the oil lamp which was a source of double danger 
in the benumbed and bandaged fingers of patients. This small 
power unit also furnishes refrigeration and artificial ice, — 
two necessities in this isolated location. It is now possible to 
keep perishable stores for a sufficient length of time to make 
buying in larger quantities expedient. The making of ice re- 
duces a heavy expenditure for purchase and transportation to 
a moderate outlay for power and labor. 

Last year the Board asked an appropriation for a shoal-draft 
service boat, and in previous years has requested funds for 
the dredging of a channel from the wharf to deep water. Both

items primarily involve a question of economy, though the proc- 
ess of going ashore in a skiff in rough weather is also hazardous 
and subject to accidents that would be far less likely to happen 
with a proper landing. During the past two years eelgrass 
has increased about the present wharf to such an extent that 
a catboat cannot be driven through it by engine power at low 
tide. This growth threatens to close the approach completely 
for power-driven boats. The only remedy appears to be the 
dredging of a short channel as recommended. 

More urgent than these improvements, however, is the need 
of a dispensary and hospital building which vnll centralize 
cleansing and treatment in one place under proper hospital 
conditions. Experience in the administration of Penikese Hos- 
pital fully demonstrates the need of specially adapted facilities 
for the care and treatment of lepers. It is essential that the 
enforcement of cleanliness with regTilarity of treatment be 
brought about without unduly exposing the staff of officers 
whose duty it is to bathe these patients, treat them and bind 
up their wounds. The Board therefore asks for a one-story 
structure containing bathing facilities, dispensary and space 
for X-ray apparatus, with adjoining vtdngs for bed cases. The 
outside estimate for this building, equipped and furnished, is 
$40,000. 

With an appropriation of $22,650. a total of $23,390.83 was 
expended for the maintenance of this institution, creating a 
deficit of $740.83. Of the amount expended, $9,329.62 was 
for salaries, wages, and labor; all other expenses, $14,061.21. 
Total receipts from all sources other than the State treasury, 
$87.03. Ratio of daily average number of persons employed 
to daily average number of inmates, 1 to 4.7. For detailed 
analysis of receipts and expenditures, see pp. 69-80. ' 

FINANCIAL ADMINISTRATION OF INSTITUTIONS. 

The Board in its supervision of the financial administration 
of the several State charitable institutions — the plant and its 
upkeep and maintenance — inspects each institution through 
paid officers at least once each month and through its own com- 
mittees and individual members at frequent intervals. 



64 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

Monthly analysis is made of all articles of food, coal, hay, 
and grain purchased, and tabulated results sent to each institu- 
tion. In addition, sundry tables covering the year's operations 
have been prepared. 

The following tables are designed to show in detail the finan- 
cial condition of each institution. A convenient summary of 
the State's property represented by each institution is followed 
by an analysis of receipts and a similar analysis of expendi- 
tures. Finally a detailed analysis of expenditures is followed 
by a comparison of all appropriations and the expenditures 
made therefrom. 

I. I^'VENTOEY. 

Inventory of State property represented by the institutions 
is sho^vn in Table IV. This tabulation is in four parts. Parts 
I. and II. exhibit realty ; Part III. shows personalty ; Part IV. 
summarizes the whole. 

From Parts I. and II. it appears that on November 30, 1913, 
the twelve State Charitable Institutions returned $4,977,895.75 
in real estate, $304,613.78 of this amount being land, and 
$4,673,281.97 representing buildings. Chattels real and other 
items of betterment are not separately considered ; hence water, 
telephone, fire, and sewerage systems are to be found in the 
miscellaneous columns under the head of ^^ buildings." 

Part III. shows the uniform analysis of personal property 
adopted by the State Auditor, to the amount of $1,077,519.21. 
The total valuation, real and personal, as shown in Part IV., 
is $6,055,414.96.

stitution from whatever source for whatever purpose, excepting 
certain private funds, casting aU together for ready comparison. 
The tabulation also shows such of the receipts as under the law 
are available for maintenance purposes in 1914. According to

Of this amount, $2,050,347.09 was received from the State 
treasury, and the remainder, $196,399.65, came in on account 
of the institution, through board of patients, sale of products, 
or otherwise. Of this latter figure, $147,662.65 is available 
for maintenance purposes in 1914.

70 STx\TE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

III. EXPENDITUEES, 

Table VI., divided into four parts, shows all expenditures of 
whatever nature on account of the several institutions. Part I. 
deals with maintenance only. Part II. exhibits outlays for 
special purposes, divided into four headings, namely, ^' land," 
" buildings," ^' furnishings and equipment," and " miscel- 
laneous." In Part III. are shown all moneys expended for 
purposes so far apart from the institution proper as to fall out- 
side the uniform classifications. With two exceptions, Trustees' 
expenses appear in the miscellaneous column under " mainte- 
nance." These two exceptions are expenses for the Trustees of 
the Training Schools and of the Trustees in charge of the State 
sanatoria. Because of various duties these two Boards of 
Trustees have appropriations apart from' the grants for their 
institutions. Part III., in addition to these special outlays, 
shows also the industries fund administered by the Trustees 
in charge of the State Farm. This fund is self-perpetuating, 
and, though a State outlay, is so far separate as to require. in- 
dividual treatment in the classification. Part IV. summarizes 
the whole. 

The table shows that $1,635,236.60 was spent for mainte- 
nance exclusive of expenditures for special purposes mentioned 
in Part II., which amounted to $275,447.61. By adding to 
these amounts $139,662.88 for sundry expenditures, as shown 
in Part III., we find a grand total of $2,050,347.09 expended 
on account of the twelve institutions. 

In addition to the total expenditures as indicated above, two 
institutions — Lyman School and the Industrial School for 
Girls — have private trust funds which are administered for 
the benefit of inmates, but independently of the State's invest- 
ment. The custody of each is vested in the State Treasurer, 
whose duty it is to invest the same and to pay therefrom at the 
request of the Trustees. Three of those trusts — • the Lyman 
fund, the Lyman Trust fund, and the Lamb fund — apply to 
Lyman School, while the Fay, the Mary Lamb, and the Rogers 
School funds pertain to the Industrial School for Girls. From 
these sources a total of $1,492.68 was expended during the 



Parti.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 71 

year, of whicli $20.52 was for books out of the Rogers fund, 
and the balance from the Lyman Trust and Mary Lamb funds. 
The major part of the outlay was for entertainments, drill and 
band equipment, athletic goods, lectures, prizes, and similar 
miscellaneous items. 

IV. A]s"ALYSis OF Maiis'tenais^ce ais^d ^et Pek Capita. 

The uniform analysis of maintenance expenditures comprises 
eight classes of divisions namely, " salaries, wages, and labor ; " 
" food ; " " clothing and clothing materials ; " " furnishings ; " 
'^ heat, light, and power ; " ^' repairs and improvements ; " 
'^ farm, stable, and grounds ; " and " miscellaneous." Table 
VII. is correspondingly divided into eight parts, with a sum- 
mary, and shows for each of the twelve institutions the total 
cost of maintenance for each of the main headings in the 
analysis. It further shows all receipts from sales or refunds; 
the difference, which is the net cost to the institution ; and the 
average net weekly per capita cost to the institution, with a 
column showing the corresponding per capita for the three- 
year period just ended.

Part!.] GENERAL \YORK OF THE BOARD. 81 

V. CoMPAEisox OF AppFvOpriatioxs a^'d Expexdituees 

THEEEFEO:sr. 

Table VIII. affords comj^arison of approj^riatioiis for main- 
tenance with the resi3ective amounts expended therefrom. 
Appropriations are classified as '* receipts available for main- 
tenance/*' and '• appropriations in addition to such receipts." 
All receipts at the four sanatoria, the Hospital School, and the 
Xorfolk State Hospital, though turned, like receipts of all the 
other institutions, into the State treasury, are by law applicable 
to maintenance in the succeeding year. Receipts at the re- 
maining institutions are not so applied. By this comparison 
the total maintenance expenditures exceeded the total appro- 
priations by $14,877.60. that amount representing the net 
deficit. Balances covered back into the treasury from all the 
several appropriations totalled $5,289.63. Inasmuch as this 
sum by such reversion cease? to be available for institutional 
purposes, the equivalent should be added to the deficiency just 
stated in order to show the apparent deficit which must be met 
by additional appropriations. This apparent deficit totals 
$20,167.23. The heaviest deficit was incurred at the Westfield 
State Sanatorium, where rapid expansion to meet the Trustees' 
plan of making this a hospital for tuberculous children has 
created unforeseen demands upon maintenance funds. 

Receipts of 1012 available for maintenance in 1913 totalled 
$155,227.05. This sum was received largely on account of 
board of patients at the State sanatoria and the Hospital School.

VL Appropeiatioxs for Special Purposes. 
The total of appropriations for special purposes during 1913; 
as shown by Table IX., was $316,307.89. In addition to this 
amount, the several institutions began the year with a total of 
$281,728.88 unexpended balance on previous special appro- 
priations. The grand total available for 1913 was, therefore, 
$598,036.77. The amount expended from this total was $275,- 
447.61, leaving an unexpended balance of $322,589.16, of which 
$320,153.91 will be available in 1914. The small remainder 
of $2,435.25 reverts to the State treasury. 

VII. Xet Cost to the Commoxwealth. 
The net cost to the State of maintaining or conducting each 
institution is the difference between total expenditure and the 
total receipts from all sources other than the State treasury. 
This total outlay must cover all moneys spent for maintenance 
and special purposes, together with all expenditures for sundry 
purposes apart from the institution, and interest on outstanding 
bonds. These items are compared in Table X. For con- 
venience, the daily average number of inmates and the net 
weekly per capita cost to the State are added. This tabulation 
shows a daily average number of inmates of 7.016.35. and 
expenditures for all purposes of $2,123,562.24. Total receipts 
from institutions, i.e., sources other than the State treasui-y. 
amounted to $196,399.65. The net cost to the State for all 
twelve institutions amounted to $1,927,162.59, making the net 
weekly per capita cost to the State $5,267.

86 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

VIII. ANALYSIS OF Pay Roll. 
Table XL, divided into six parts, shoTrs a comparative analy- 
sis of the pay roll for each of the twelve institutions. The first 
■Rye parts divide service into five classes, namely, '' general ad- 
ministration," '' medical service,'* '^ ward service," ^' repairs 
and improvements," and '^ farm, stable, and grounds." Part 
six summarizes the whole. The table also shows the full roster, 
that is, the number of employees deemed necessary to carry on 
the institution efficiently, and in an opposite column the daily 
average number employed, with the same average for the three- 
year period ending Z^ovember 30, 1912. The same treatment 
is given the average monthly compensation and the weekly per 
capita cost. Thus it appears that the full roster for all the 
institutions together was 1,280. The total average number 
employed was 1,225.5, while for the three-year period preced- 
ing 1913 it was 1,097.22. The total average monthly compen- 
sation paid was $531,723 as against $502,263 in the preceding 
three-year period. Miscellaneous and incidental employment 
not entered upon the pay rolls of the institutions does not ap- 
pear in this tabulation. The number of inmates to one em- 
ployee remains about as before. 

IX. Average Prices paid foe Food. 
As a part of the Board's supervision of fiscal administration, 
all expense bills for each institution are analyzed and a schedule 
made therefrom, showing a comparison of prices paid by each 
institution for commodities purchased. Table XII. shows in 
convenient form the average price for 1913. and for the three- 
year period ending Xovember 30, 1913, of each of the several 
staple articles of food.

Description^ of Plants. 

The boTs in the Essex School are housed in a wooden 
cottage and in the mng of the brick administration building. 
There is a separate school building of brick. The farm con- 
tains 35 acres, 25 of which are cultivated and 10 hired for hay 
and crops. The stock consists of 14 cows, 7 horses, 33 cattle, 
140 pigs, 250 hens. 

The building which constitutes the Hampden County School 
is old and ill adapted for the purpose. The county commis- 
sioners apparently anticipate early removal to some new site, 
and have consequently provided very little in the way of repairs. 
The physical condition of the school appears greatly improved ; 
there is no longer a stale odor, and the new superintendent is 
persevering with the work of getting rid of the waterbugs with 
which the place has become infested. This school has but two 
shower baths ; its sanitary arrangements are poor and inade- 
quate. 

The Middlesex County School has four cottages for boys and 
an industrial building. The number of inmates has greatly 
decreased, Cambridge having ceased, during the past year, to 
send cases there. As a result there are but two of the four 
cottages now occupied. There are 37 acres of land, 3 cows, 4 
horses, 8 swine and a number of hens. The superintendent has 
a separate residence. 



100 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

The Norfolk Union School has one wooden building with an 
annex and a cottage for care of contagious diseases. There are 
32 acres of land, 3 cows, 3 pigs, 1 horse and 150 hens. A new 
staircase has been built from the first floor to the basement. 
The school needs an indoor playroom, which might be used for 
rough games in bad weather and for gymnasium purposes. 

The Suffolk Training School has five cottages for inmates 
only three of which are occupied. In addition, there are four 
buildings, used for a school, administration and hospital, offi- 
cers' quarters and service. The superintendent has a separate 
residence. Each cottage has a reception room for friends on 
visiting days, but these are not used for that purpose, visitors 
being obliged to see boys in the office. There are 50 acres 
of land, about 10 of which are cultivated; 30 to 40 pigs, 3 
horses, and 300 hens. 

The Worcester County Training School has one building 
and an annex for officers and boys, and about 60 acres of land 
(38 owned and 22 leased), 8 of which are cultivated. There 
are 6 cows, 4 horses, 4 young cattle, 6 hogs, and 150 hens. A 
number of needed changes have been made since the last visit 
by this Board. A workshop has been built and fitted up for 
instruction in carpentry and repair work; laundry machinery 
has been installed; a hospital department on the third floor is 
being built: and a steam plant in a separate building is to be 
installed. There are too many boys in the group at this school. 
If the younger ones could be housed in a cottage by themselves 
they Avould gain both physically and morally by the lessened 
contact with the older boys. 

Employees. 
The six training schools, with about 477 boys, employ 118 
persons, or about 1 employee to every 4 boys. These are classi- 
fied as follows : — 

Superintendents . 6 

Clerks 3 

Teachers 16 

Special teachers 11 

Male supervisors 11

There has been one change in administration during the year. 
Mr. Charles E. Butler became superintendent of the Hampden 
County School in place of Mr. Irwin G. Ward, resigned. 'Mr. 
Butler was formerly superintendent of the Chicopee Almshouse. 

XUMBERS, MOVEME^^T OF POPULATIOX, AXD AgES. 

It appears from Table I. that there were 848 boys in the six 
schools in 1913. There were 599 at the beginning of the year. 
During the twelve months 249 were admitted and 367 were 
discharged, leaving 481 on November 30, Avhen the year closed. 
The average number of boys during the year was 538. The 
average age of the boys at the time of admittance was eleven 
years, ten months ; the ages of the individual boys ranged from 
seven years to fifteen years and ten months. 

The total number of boys enrolled on the several days of 
visitation was 477. Table III. shows the distribution of in-

Two children not accounted for. 



The total number of boys in all the schools is about the same 
as it was ten years ago, though the distribution has changed. 
The Essex School has increased during that period from 35 to 



102 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

134; Middlesex has decreased from 148 to 97, owing to the 
fact that Cambridge has ceased to send cases there ; the Suffolk 
School has decreased from 213 to 97, due, perhaps, to a wider 
use of the probation system for boys considered hopeful, and 
of the Lyman School for those needing institution training. 
The Worcester School has increased from 33 to 71 boys during 
the ten-year period. The parents of over 50 per cent, of the 
boys in most of these training schools are foreign born. 

It is apparent, from the ages and general appearance of 
the boys, that many cannot be habitual truants or school 
offenders, and that others are much more than this. Last year 
the Middlesex School received 33 boys under nine years of age; 
.3 boys entered the school when they were only seven years of 
age, or the year during which they attained legal school age. 
These younger boys are either neglected children or are placed 
in the training school because of the poverty of their parents. 
Many eases should have been dealt with individually, on the 
basis of the need in the family, and should never have been com- 
mitted to an institution under the archaic system of uniting re- 
lief and correction. On the other hand, many of the older lx)ys 
have been guilty of various kinds and degi'ees of crime. Inves- 
tigation will show that cigarette smokers, degenerates and per- 
verts are plentiful among them ; and unless the most careful 
classification is pursued, the more hardened boys are certain to 
instruct the more innocent, until the lowest moral standard be- 
comes the average standard of the whole number. 

Recoeds axd Histories. 
The records of the institutions, as a rule, show little more 
than enough to identify the boy in case he escapes. As a rule, 
no information comes with him except that contained in the 
mittimus : and his past history, therefore, is learned, if at all, 
in a haphazard manner after he reaches the school. Further 
knowledge or information ends when the boy leaves, unless he 
chooses to write and divulge his plans and progress. 



Part LI GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 103 



^Medical Examixatio>'s axd Care. 

The Essex, the Middlesex and Suffolk schools, require a 
medical examination of new boys upon entrance, the last an 
inspection at regular intervals. The second school has just in- 
augurated such a system. The amoimt of medical attendance 
upon the sick varies ; for instance, the Hampden School has con- 
fined its care largely to the extraction of teeth. The Worcester 
School pays out scarcely $1 per capita for physician's services 
in a year. 

It is not safe to presume that the boys do not need medical 
care of the most expert type, as even cursory examination will 
show. Seventeen boys out of a fraction of those in the six 
training schools said that they had worn glasses before entering, 
but not afterwards. Only four boys were seen wearing them. 
Many of the boys are bed wetters ; and a large proportion of 
them are imdersized and ansemic and are plainly the victims of 
previous neglect, underfeeding, and bad habits. Taking the 
schools as a whole, the physical condition of the inmates at the 
time of commitment does not vary greatly in the several locali- 
ties. It may be safely asserted, therefore, that the 989 recorded 
instances of sickness in the Suffolk County School during the 
past year indicate the probable health conditions existing in 
the other schools if the same medical scrutiny were invoked to 
bring them to light. 

The Essex, Hampden and Middlesex schools have not suf- 
ficient provision for isolating suspicious cases. Norfolk has 
recently equipped a separate cottage, and Worcester, a portion 
of the attic, as a hospital ward. Suffolk uses one end of the 
office building (the former hospital building) for non-con- 
tagious cases, with a nurse in charge. The Middlesex School 
has a well-equipped dental laboratory. This school, as well as 
the one in Essex, employs a dentist regularly one day each week. 

Food. 
The dietaries in the different schools differ greatly. The 
Essex School leads the list in the variety and substance of the 
food furnished. At the other extreme is the Hampden School, 



104 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

which serves all breakfasts of bread, molasses and milk, and all 
suppers of bread, molasses and water. The dinners are vege- 
tables, soup or baked beans with bread and water ; corned beef 
is served once a week. There are no desserts or milk. Such 
fare is monotonous and dreary to the last degree, and the poor 
physical appearance of the boys must be partly due to lack of 
proper nourishment. In connection with this school it is grati- 
fying to note that the present management is making a special 
study of dietary, and has made a number of changes for the 
better. 

The dietaries of the other four schools fall in between these 
two extremes. The Suffolk County School gives baked beans an 
important place, serving them twice each week for dinner. A 
new chef was employed there at the close of the year, and less 
prominence may be given in the future, perhaps, to this article 
of diet. It is a fair conclusion from inspection that the dietaries 
in several of the schools would be improved if they were more 
varied and contained more meat and milk. Silence is the pre- 
vailing rule at meal times in all but the !N"orfolk School, where 
the boys are allowed to talk in moderate tones. The honor table, 
permitted to some extent, forms an exception to this rule for a 
small group of the boys. 

Sleepiis^g Facilities. 

The dormitories, on the whole, are found to be clean and well 
equipped. x\ll except those in the Hampden School have indi- 
rect as well as direct ventilation. Fifteen boys in the Hampden 
School sleep in an attic dormitory, ventilated by open windows 
against which beds have to be placed, due to crowding. Six boys 
in the Worcester School were sleeping in an unfinished, un- 
heated attic, where conditions are very poor. Upon later in- 
spection these beds had been removed. In view of the fact that 
this institution was built to accommodate 50 inmates, the neces- 
sities to which even a highly resourceful management must re- 
sort in caring for 71 boys are at once apparent. 

The boys in all the institutions have at least two sets of under- 
clothing, which is changed weekly. The Essex and Hampden 
schools provide no nightshirts, the boys wearing their shirts 



Parti.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 105 

both night and day for a week. Many of the larger boys in the 
Worcester School were found to be wearing house shoes which 
were too short, resulting in broken-down counters and a shuffling 
gait. 

Sanitaries a^b Baths. 

All have shower baths. In three of the schools these are used 
once a week in cool weather and twice a week in summer, with 
a feet-washing midway bet^^een. Two schools require bathing 
twice a week. The Suffolk School uses its showers every night. 
The Hampden School has tubs in a dark basement, used weekly. 

Most of the schools supply individual towels, soap, tooth- 
brushes and aluminum combs. 

The urinals and toilets are fairly satisfactory, except in the 
Hampden School, where they are inadequate. In this building 
no amount of cleanliness and surveillance can render the equip- 
ment proper for the purpose of the school. 

Ppiysical Traixixg. 
Xone of the schools gives its boys systematic physical training 
or employs a physical instructor. The Essex and the Worces- 
ter schools have space which, with proper equipment, would 
serve for gymnasia. These are now used for indoor playrooms. 
Many of the boys are undersized and poorly developed, and 
would benefit from intelligent physical training. 

Religious Instkuctiox. 
The Catholic boys in all six institutions receive instruction 
once a week from a visiting priest. In the Norfolk School a 
non-sectarian service is held every Sunday afternoon, which is 
open to ministers of all denominations. The boys in the five 
other schools are taken each Sunday in two squads to a Catholic 
and a Protestant church, respectively. 

RouTixE Work. 

Practically all the housework and n;ost of the outside work on 

the farms and in the bams is performed by the boys under the 

supervision of the various matrons and men. Eor the most part. 

some particular chore or section of the work is assigned to each 



106 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

boy on his arrival, and niiless he is changed because he does not 
fit in well, he is likely to continue with the same work through- 
out his stay. In one or two schools there is some attempt to 
change the boys around every six months ; but in the main, the 
policy is to keep the machinery of the institution running 
smoothly by retaining the boys on the chores which they have 
learned to do well. Most of the schools keep a squad of boys 
at work waxing floors, an occupation looked upon as a legitimate 
part of the upkeep of the institution, and also as exercise for 
the boy. 

Schooling. 

The Essex institution gives its boys about three hours of 
school work each day; the first four grades have five sessions 
and the last four grades but four sessions each week. There are 
eight grades and each of the two teachers has two grades at one 
time. 

The Middlesex boys have a three-hour session, with the ex- 
ception of those in the first two grades, who have four and one- 
half hours a day. Two teachers have three grades each at a 
time, and one teacher two grades. 

Worcester has but two and one-half hours per day in the 
schoolroom, with one teacher in charge. She is assisted by two 
pupils from the normal school who are changed every six weeks. 
There are nine grades in the school. 

The Hampden and Xorfolk boys have four and one-half hours 
and the Sufi^olk boys four hours and forty minutes each day in 
school. 

The Hampden School has sessions the year round, a substitute 
being employed in summer to allow the regular teacher the usual 
vacation. There are seven grades. 

Xorfolk employs two teachers for its six grades, and Suffolk 
seven teachers. In the latter school classes below the third grade 
are styled '' ungraded." 

About 380 boys, or 81 per cent, of the whole niunber, are be- 
low grade, according to their system of rating, which, in the ma- 
jority of the institutions, is not as strict as that used in city 
schools. There are 171 boys, or 35.8 per cent, of the present 
iimiates of the six schools, who will probably never get above

the sixth grade, even though they remain until they are sixteen 
years of age, — the legal limit of commitment. This means that 
a large number, in all probability, will not have sufficient edu- 
cation to hold their owm in the business world. A number of 
the boys have all the appearance of being feeble-minded.

beyond. In the same manner 42 may reach the fifth grade, but 
^Wll get no hio'her in the school ; 25 will not exceed fourth grade ; 
12 must stop at third grade and 2 will still be in second grade at 
the date of discharge. Adding the totals, therefore, there are 
171 boys, or 35.8 per cent, of all the inmates of these schools 
on the days of inspection, who at the age of sixteen will have 
advanced not farther than the sixth grade, and this even though 
the average age at commitment was eleven years, ten months. 
The average child in the public schools of Massachusetts reaches 
sixth grade at the age of eleven to twelve years. 



108 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

Maiv^ual Teaixixg. 

The Essex and Suffolk County schools teach sloyd. using 
models. About 60 boys in the former school have such train- 
ing. In the Suffolk County School the boys of the third and 
fourth grades have two hours per week, vrhile those in the fifth, 
sixth, seventh, and eighth grades have four hours per week. 

In the Middlesex and Worcester County schools the boys are 
taught to make many of the wooden articles required in the in- 
stitutions, and to repair the furniture and farm implements. 

These four schools have good facilities for their work, the 
Worcester School having built a new workshop this year. The 
Hampden County School has some instruction in sloyd, but is 
entirely without facilities ; the boys work on their school desks, 
and the result is not better than whittling. 

The Xorfolk Coimty School gives no instruction. The 
Worcester School gives the younger children so-called ^' con- 
struction work," which consists in the making of cardboard 
articles. The training is of doubtful value. 

VOCATIOXAL TbAIXIXG. 

Very little of the work appears to have been developed to the 
point where it gives the older boys vocational training. The 
sewing is largely patching and darning, some of the boys doing 
machine stitching on undergarments and overalls ; and the farm- 
ing, like the rest of the work, is so largely made up of chores 
that it probably gives no real training and leads to no special 
liking for the kind of work represented. In the Essex County 
School some four to six boys receive instruction in printing, 
and a few are taught cobbling and shoemaking. The superin- 
tendent plans to teach some of the boys shoemaking. In Mid- 
dlesex and Worcester the boys secure practical carpentry and 
repair work under the guidance of special teachers.

on credit. He then sells the produce to the school. After his 
debts are paid the balance is placed to his credit, to be spent 
bv him at the County Fair in the fall. 

Receeatiox. 

The boys in these schools average about two hours' play in 
the open in good weather. This time is broken up into shorter 
periods on school days and is spent in ball playing, marbles, 
skating, etc., according to the season. In a number of the schools 
one or more of the officers take part, but none is experienced 
as an organizer of boys' games. On Sundays, in most of the 
schools, the boys are taken for a walk. 

The facilities for indoor play in bad weather are fairly good 
in all but the Hampden and Norfolk County schools. The boys 
in the latter institution have nothing but the basement lavatory, 
which is too small and has a bad floor. In consequence, several 
minor accidents have occurred when boys were playing rough 
games. 

The Essex and Suffolk schools have reading rooms and a fair 
supply of reading matter, their collections of books being supple- 
mented by supplies from the public library. The Middlesex 
School has from 50 to 100 books in the reading rooms in each 
cottage. The Hampden School has about 300 books, but no 
reading room. The Norfolk School has 200 books; the only 
reading room is a small apartment adjoining the schoolroom 
and insufficient to accommodate the whole group. The Worces- 
ter School has but few books apart from school texts, and no 
special reading room. 

The Essex and Middlesex schools have bands. The former 
school has a swimming pool. 

The Essex boys who attain the highest rank in conduct, school 
work, etc., are taken to the theatre once a month. The Suffolk 
boys are taken to the theatre or to special events as a reward of 
merit. The Hampden, Norfolk and Worcester schools have 
fewer entertainments. 

DiSCIPIJXE. 

All the schools use corporal punishment on occasion, the super- 
intendents usually administering it in person. The institutions 
which allow subordinates to punish boys thus, require a report

in each case, or a witness in case the strokes exceed a certain 
nnmber. Several of the schools still make cnlprits stand on 
line. 

At the Hampden, Middlesex and Suffolk schools bad behavior 
means failure to earn merits and a postponement of release. In 
the other schools it means, rather, a loss of privileges. This 
last plan seems much more wholesome, and helps the boys to 
feel that positive goodness is desirable rather than a negative 
attitude which is chiefly interested in escaping censure. 

Release ox Paeole, Discharge, axd Aftee Caee. 

The Essex. Xorfolk and Worcester schools parole boys under 
sixteen when the superintendents, in their discretion, so recom- 
mend. In the three other schools the boys must earn a certain 
number of merits, a process which averages about one and a half 
years' time. It may be merely a coincidence that the schools 
having the latter system had the largest number of runaways 
during the past year, Suffolk heading the list with 61 boys 
and Middlesex following with 81. The schools which do not 
follow this plan averaged 3 to 6 cases. It is a fair question 
whether the marking system does not savor of the reformatory 
and disregard the individual. The clever little rogaie is often 
able to earn good marks more rapidly than the boy who is honest 
but careless in many points which count in the marking. The 
mere accumulation of marks does not always indicate improve- 
ment in character. Good marks should, instead, bring increased 
privileges, while the release of the boy ought to depend on his 
real progress and, what is of even more importance, the kind 
of home w^hich is to receive him. 

The parole system is weak in the matter of after care, as the 
schools, with the exception of Suffolk and Middlesex, are en- 
tirely without the proper machinery to investigate the homes 
and to supervise the boys when returned to them. In many 
cases it is a waste of money to maintain the boy for a limited 
time in a training school only to send him, when he shows signs 
of steadiness, into the very conditions and among the same 
people who were the cause of his delinquency. ]\Iany of the 
bovs have homes which will never be fit to receive them; and 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. Ill 

unless the superinteudents can take time from important work 
in the institution to find other places for these boys they re- 
main indefinitely in the school or are sent to their nnfit homes. 
The Essex School washes its hands of part of the problem by 
discharging some of the boys who leave, even though they are 
under sixteen years. Such discharged cases, even though they 
turn out worse than before, cannot come back to the school 
without first repeating their original experience in court. 

COXCLUSIO^'S. 

Viewing the six institutions fairly on a basis of careful in- 
spection, the Board reaches the following conclusions : — 

1. The Hampden School should provide a better dietary, 
nightshirts, proper bathing facilities and sanitaries, and abolish 
the attic dormitory. Probably nothing short of a new building 
will solve the question of proper accommodations for this school. 

The Xorfolk School needs space for indoor recreation. 

Worcester School should abolish the attic dormitory and the 
strong room in the cellar, though not now in use ; separate the 
younger boys into a cottage group by themselves ; and provide 
individual soap, combs, toothbrushes, and properly fitting house 
shoes. 

2. The care and education of these boys involves a due regard 
for certain standards which should commend themselves as rea- 
sonable to the several counties, so long as they see fit to maintain 
these training schools. Thus — 

(1) There should be a complete separation of the younger 
from the older boys, regardless of the increased cost of the cot- 
tage plan in dollars and cents. The commingling of the boys in 
one group must result in moral harm to the younger ones in 
spite of the closest supers'ision. 

(2) Each boy, upon entrance, should be examined by a physi- 
cian and should be given medical care if necessary. A regular 
medical inspection of all the boys should be made at least once a 
year, and dental examinations at least once in six months. The 
entering boys should have a mental examination in order that 
those found to be feeble-minded may be transferred to proper 
institutions. 



112 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

(3) The dietary should be sufficiently abundant and varied, 
particularly in milk and meat, to keep the boys well nourished. 
Green vegetables might be raised by the pupils in their ovm 
garden plots and sold to the school, which would give them an 
opportunit}' to earn and expend money as well as enrich the bill 
of fare. The groups at the tables should be small and a reason- 
able amount of conversation should be allowed. 

(4) Xearly all these boys are behind in their grades. Pre- 
simiably one of the objects in committing truants and school 
offenders to the training schools is to remedy backwardness in 
studies. It follows, therefore, that the t-eachers employed should 
be thoroughly competent to teach backward children, and that 
the groups should be small enough to permit of much indi^ddual 
work. The subjects should be taught by methods which would 
relate them as much as possible to the rest of the work ; arithme- 
tic, especially, would lend itself to such treatment. The school 
work would thus be<jome more interesting and useful. 

(5) A good system of industrial training should be intro- 
duced for the older boys. The majority of the 88 boys now in 
the six schools who are between fifteen and sixteen ^^ars of 
age (51 of whom are in grades below the seventh), must shortly 
be discharged without any special training which will make it 
easier for them to become self-supporting. 

If the time given to waxing floors and other work, which is 
invented largely to keep the boys busy and exercised, were de- 
voted to industrial training, the boys would benefit and the in- 
stitutions would not suffer gTeatly. 

(6) The boys should receive good physical training under 
leaders skilled in boys' club work, who could organize and super- 
vise their play as well as their exercise. The physical labor 
which the boys perform is not a good substitute for an intelli- 
gent system of physical development which they need. 

(7) I\Iarks for good conduct should give the boy certain privi- 
leges and not automatically procure his release. Release should 
depend partly upon progress and partly upon the certainty 
that he will go into a good home. 

(8) Adequate machinery should be provided which will in- 
sure the investigation of the home before the bov is returned to 



Part 1.1 GEXER.\L \YORK OF THE BOARD. 113 

it; the imding of a home, when necessary; and a friendly over- 
sight of the boy while on parole and until he is on his feet. 

(9) Finally, more careful case work is needed in the courts 
from which these boys are committed. Careful investigation by 
competent probation officers would disclose many cases, espe- 
cially among the yotmger children, where appropriate aid and 
oversight in the family, or the placement of the child in another 
home, would prevent committal to the training school. Others. 
again, who are feeble-minded, would receive proper care, in- 
stead of relegation to these schools in appreciable ntimbers. 
And. further, when a case for institutional training did come 
before the court he would not be sent to an instittition tmless it 
were equipped to give the care and training which would tend 
to make him a useful citizen. 

Viewing the inspection at a glance, the Board finds six super- 
intendents striving loyally, and with a high degree of efficiency. 
to make the best of a system of county institutional care which 
is not in accord with the best methods in the care and protection 
of children.

The law provides that the State Board of Charity may visit 
and inspect all places where city or town poor are stipported in 
families, and requires the Board to visit, at least once a year, 
not only aU children who are maintained by the Common- 
wealth, btit all minor children who are supported at the expense 
of any city or town. Children illegally retained in city or 
town almshouses, — i.e.^ pauper children over two years of age, 
or. if the mothers are inmates, over three years of age. and not 
defective in body or mind, who have been retained in an alms- 
house for more than two months, — mtist be removed therefrom 
and placed at board at the expense of the city or town con-

between fifty and sixty; 52 between sixty and seventy; 55 be- 
tween seventy and eighty; 33 between eighty and ninety; 6

$2 per week ; in 54 cases from $2 to $3 per week ; in 79 cases 
from $3 to $4 per week ; and in the remaining 72 cases — 
mostly of old and feeble persons — the rate varied from $4 
to $10, according to the amount of care required. Of the

whole number, 65 per cent, were reported to be in fairlv good 
or good physical condition, and 90 per cent, in good mental 
condition. In all but 7 cases, or 3 per cent., they were appar- 
ently receiving good care. There were 74 able to do light work, 
either in the house or about the premises. There were 2S sup- 
ported in their own homes. In 108 cases, according to the 
reports, the Overseers of the Poor complied with the law re- 
quiring them to visit the paupers at least once in every six 
months; in 22 cases they made one visit a year; in 29 cases 
the record of visits was uncertain; in one case they made one 
visit in fourteen years ; and in the remaining 57 cases no evi- 
dence of visits was found.

visited, 60 were so defective in body or mind as to render their 
retention in the almshouse desirable, and 4 were removed after 
notification by the Board to Overseers of the Poor that they 
were detained contrary to law. There were 3 who attended

could be made. The remaining 585 — 313 boys and 272 girls 
— were supported by 67 cities and towns, as follows: Abington,

Of the whole number, 67 were cared for and treated in pub- 
lic and private hospitals and asylums. There were 422 who 
attended school, and 157 who did more or less work. Of the 
whole number, 548 were in fairly good physical condition and 
561 in fairly good mental condition.- The price of board varied 
from less than $1 per week to $6.50 per week. These children 
were found to be well cared for ; the few exceptions have been 
brought to the attention of the local overseers. 

The Penalty ii^curred by Certain Cities and Towns for 
Failure to make their Pauper Returns during the 
Month of April, 1913. 
Sections 39-42 of chapter 81 of the Revised Laws, as 

amended by chapter 115 of the Acts of 1905, are as follows: — 

Section 39. Overseers of the poor shall keep full and accurate 
records, in a form prescribed by the state board of charity, of the 
paupers fully supported, the persons relieved and partially sup- 
ported, and the travellers and vagrants lodged at the expense of 
their cities and towns and of the amount paid for such support and 
relief. 

Section 40. They shall annually in April, for the year ending 



Parti.] GENERAL ^YORK OF THE BOARD. 117 

on the last day of March, return to the state board of charity the 
number of such persons supported and relieved, the cost thereof, 
and a record of those fully supported. 

Sectiox 41. In the year nineteen hundred and five and in every 
tenth year thereafter the return of the overseers of the poor shall 
contain true and correct answers to such additional inquiries as the 
state board of charity Dfiay deem it advisable to make. 

Section 42. If the overseers of the poor of a city or town re- 
fuse or neglect to comply with the requirements of the three pre- 
ceding sections, such city or town shall forfeit one dollar for each 
da/s neglect, and the amount of such forfeiture shall be deducted 
from any amount to which said city or town may be entitled in 
reimbursement for relief of state paupers as provided in sections 
fifteen and sixteen of chapter eighty-five; and if no such reimburse- 
ment shall be due to said city or town, the forfeiture shall be de- 
ducted from any money which may be due to it from the Common- 
wealth. 

Under these laws the Board reported to the Treasurer of the 
Commonwealth the names of the cities and to^vns that failed 
to make their pauper returns during the month of April, 1913, 
together with the amount of penalty incurred in each instance, 
as follows: Abington, $4; Amesbury, $1; Ashbj, $5; Ashfield, 
$5; Barnstable, $2; Hinsdale, $5; Lee, $6; Lincoln, $12; 
Lynnfield, $5 ; Xahant, $1 ; Xew Braintree, $2 ; Xoithfield.

$5; Shirley, $4; Southborough, $11; Tolland, $5; Truro, $4; 
Wendell, $6; Westminster, $1; Wrentham, $159; total, $265. 



ADMINISTRATIVE DUTIES OF THE BOARD. 

In. addition to the duties of supervision and publicity above 
given, the Board is charged with certain duties entirely admin- 
istrative. These are chiefly grouped under two heads, viz., 
State adult poor and State minor wards. 

The administrative duties with reference to the State adult 
poor comprise the discharge of sane inmates of the State In- 
firmary and the State Farm; the execution of laws relative to 
the release on parole of prisoners at the State Farm ; the inves- 
tigation as to settlement of persons, possibly State cases, who 
have been supported, relieved, and buried by cities and towns. 



118 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

and of saue inmates of State institutions; the directing of aid 
of unsettled persons by cities and towns; the transfer of sane 
paupers from one institution to another ; the sending of paupers 
to the places Avithin and without the State where they belong; 
and the management of the leper hospital at Penikese Island. 

Report of Penikese hospital will be found at page 60 ante, 
under the heading of '^ Supervision,'"* where it has been placed 
for better comparison with the State institutions which the 
Board supervises. 

The administrative duties with regard to Stat-e minor wards 
comprise the maintenance and care of delinquent, neglected, 
and dependent children coming into the custody of the Board 
through court commitment and otherwise, and the execution 
of the laws concerning abandoned infants, and infant boarding- 
houses, and the licensing of lying-in hospitals. 

The State Outdoor Poor. 
Numbers, 

Unsettled persons in distress are aided in the first instance 
by the city or town in which they are so found. For purposes 
of administration, these State cases are divided into the fol- 
lowing classifications : — 

(a) The sick State poor (Revised Laws, chapter 85, sections 
14, 15). 

(h) Cases of dangerous diseases (Acts of 1902, chapter 213, 
amended by Acts of 1907, chapter 386, and Acts of 1909, chap- 
ter 380). 

(c) Cases of wife-settlement (Revised Laws, chapter 80, sec- 
tion 1, chapter 85, section 16, amended by Acts of 1909, chap- 
ter 98). 

(d) Cases of temporary aid (Revised Laws, chapter 81, sec- 
tion 21, amended by Acts of 1903, chapter 355, amended by 
Acts of 1912, chapter 331). 

The statutes provide that the expense of such relief, follow- 
ing proper notice to the Board and approval after consideration, 
shall be reimbursed by the Commonwealth. In accordance with 
these laws 13,463 such notices were received during the official 
year from 224 cities and towns, on account of 27,027 persons 



PartL] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 119 

and 10,045 patients, a net increase of 351, or about 2% per 
cent, over the previous year. Of these notices 7,139, concern- 
ing 7,697 individuals, were on account of persons too sick to 
be removed; 2,427 notices, concerning 2,434 individuals, were 
on account of persons sick with dangerous diseases; 766 notices, 
concerning 3,462 individuals, were for cases of wife-settlement ; 
and 3,131 notices, covering 13,434 individuals, were for tem- 
porary aid and transportation. Of the total number of notices 
above mentioned, 2,165, concerning 6,059 individuals, were in 
cases on account of which a previous notice had been received 
during the year. 

(a) Cases of Sick State Poor, — The 7,139 notices of sick 
State poor were sent by 159 cities and towns, concerning 7,697 
persons, of whom 7,157 were represented as being too ill to be 
removed. This number shows a net decrease in the number 
of notices from the previous year of 153, or about 2 per cent., 
and, as compared with the official year 1910-11, a decrease of 
496, or about 6% per cent. The largest number of notices 
received in any one month was 713 in January ; and the small- 
est, 494, in September. Of these, 7,139, or about 56 per cent., 
were from the city of Boston, viz., 3,956 from the Boston City 
Hospital, 8 from the Institutions Department, 42 from the 
Boston Lying-in Hospital, and 4 on account of persons aided 
in their homes. The number of visits made by the officers 
of the Board, in the investigation of these 7,139 notices, was 
16,592. As a result of these investigations, the Overseers of 
the Poor were directed to discontinue aid in 2,229 cases, — 
on account of the recovery of the patient sufficiently to permit 
of his removal to the State Infirmary. In 319 aid was refused 
because at the time of the application the patient could have 
been removed without danger. Out of the 5,024 cases investi- 
gated by the visitors, settlements were found in 120, covering 
134 persons. Among those reported as sick there were 524 
deaths. 

(6) Cases of Dangerous Diseases. — The number of notices 
received was 2,427, from 96 cities and towns, concerning 2,434 
persons, all patients. These figures show a net increase of 209, 
or about 9 per cent., over the previous year, and, as compared 
with the year 1910-11, a decrease of 94, or about 4 per cent. 



120 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

Of these 2,427 notices, 749, or about 31 per cent., were from 
the city of Boston. The following diseases were reported: 
anterior poliomyelitis, 5 ; cerebro-spinal meningitis, 10 ; chicken 
pox, 3; diphtheria, 578; leprosy, 4; measles, 169; ophthalmia 
neonatorum, 42; pertussis, 5; rabid dog bite, 2; scarlet fever, 
495 ; smallpox, 53 ; tetanus, 2 ; trichinosis, 1 ; tuberculosis, 696 ; 
and typhoid fever 362. The number of visits made by the 
officers of the Board in these cases was 4,342, and of 1,581 new 
cases investigated settlements were found in 184, covering 184 
persons. 

(c) Cases of Wife-settlement. — The number of notices re- 
ceived was 766, from 60 cities and towns, concerning 3,462 
persons, of whom 454 were sick. These figures show a net 
decrease in the number of notices as compared with the previous 
year of 91, or about iVio per cent., and, as compared with the 
year 1910-11, a decrease of 114, or about 13 per cent. Of 
these 766 notices, 303, or about 40 per cent., were from the 
city of Boston. As these 766 notices represent men whose 
families have settlements in some city or town within the Com- 
monwealth, and 6 of these men were found to have a settlement, 
the total number aided by the State was 760, of whom 324 were 
sick. The number of visits made in these cases was 879. As 
a result of the visits, the local authorities were advised to dis- 
continue aid in 3 cases. There were 246 new cases investigated 
by agents of the Board. 

(d) Cases of Temporai-y Aid. — The number of notices re- 
ceived was 3,131, concerning 13,434 persons, from 170 cities 
and towns. The largest number of notices received in any one 
month was 810 in January; and the smallest number, 136, in 
June. The whole number shows a net increase, as compared 
with the preceding year, of 284, or about 10 per cent., and, 
with the year 1910-11, a decrease of 74, or about 2 per cent. 
Of these notices, 356, or about 11 per cent., were received 
from the city of Boston. The nimiber of visits made under 
these notices was 3,660. There were 873 new cases investi- 
gated by the agents of the Board, and 166 settlements were 
found, covering 677 persons. As a result of visitation, aid was 
discontinued in 224 cases, and in 36 cases aid was refused.

The number, amount, and allowance of the bills examined by 
the Board, on acoount of cases of sick St^te poor, wife-settle- 
ment, dangerous diseases, temporary aid. and burials, are shown 
in the following tabulation. It is to be noted that the total 
shown in this table may vary somewhat from the total paid out 
of the treasury during the fiscal year from the appropriation in 
question. This possible variance arises from the fact that bills 
audited by this Board are in some cases not actually paid dur- 
ing the year for which the audit is shown. For actual expendi-

The Aftee Caee of Wome^n' a^'d Childeex discharged by 
THE Board from the State Iis-firmary. 

The efforts of the Board's Committee on Social Service, 
which supervises this important work, have been continued 
throughout the year wifh increased energy. So varying are the 
problems and conditions that arise, that the committee has 
found it necessary to hold meetings biweekly, in addition to 
biweekly conferences of the chairman of the committee with 
the visitors at the State Infirmary. Another special visitor was 
appointed during the year, as well as a clerk having knowledge 
of the law. This latter appointment seemed especially advis- 
able after experiencing the benefits derived from volunteer 
service furnished by the Harvard Legal Aid Society. The co- 
operation of the physicians and nurses assigned by the superin- 
tendent of the State Infirmary has been invaluable, as well as 
that of the numerous private charitable societies and agencies 
which have become interested. 

The desire of the committee is — 

Primarily. — To protect the welfare of the mothers and chil- 
dren and place them in such environment and under such super- 
vision as will tend to develop them into useful and upright 
citizens. 

Secondly. — To segregate the defective who is found to be 
a menace to the community. 

Thirdly. — To enforce the responsibility of the husband or 
father. 

It should be borne in mind that many of these unfortunate 
women have exhausted the patience and resources of private 
organizations, relatives or benevolent individuals, and appeal

for public relief in the last extremity ; others became inmates in 
the hope of concealing the true facts from the community from 
whence they came, 17 women admitted during the year having 
given assumed names and 15 being in pregnant condition when 
they landed in the United States ; 28 were infected with syphilis 
and 27 with gonorrhea. 

During the year the committee has considered the cases of 
213 women admitted with 135 children, in addition to 61 women 
(17 of whom were pregnant) with 64 children who were in- 
mates at the beginning of the year. Of the admitted cases 139 
women were pregnant accompanied by 23 children, and 74 were 
not pregnant, with 112 children. One hundred and twenty- 
eight of these women were unmarried, and may be classified 
as follows : — 



Pregnant for the first illegitimate child . 
Pregnant for the second illegitimate child 
Pregnant for the third illegitimate child 
Pregnant for the fourth illegitimate child

the last three years, and 67 could not read or write ; the average 
age of the single women was twenty-two years, the married 
women, twenty-eight years. 

From a tabulation of 190 cases, it appears that only 33 were 
bom in the United States, 10 of whom were colored and 14 of 
foreign parentage. 

The occupations of these women were as follows : — 

Domestics 67 

Housewives 32 

Waitresses 8 

Hotel workers 2 

Laundresses . . . " 6 

Mill and faetoiT' operatives 73 

Department store employees 2 

The number discharged during the year was 196 women and 
211 children, including 22 pregnant for whose confinement ar- 
rangements had been made outside the institution, and exclusive 
of 6 women and 18 children who died (11 of these children died 
of congenital syphilis). Seventy-one women with 100 children 
were discharged to relatives ; 31 women with 31 children to 
private societies ; 2 women with 5 children to friends ; 10 women 
with 5 children to the city or town of legal settlement; 36 
women with 33 children were placed at service at a wage of 
from $2 to $4 a week; 10 women with 12 children were de- 
ported ; 6 women with 4 children were returned to other States ; 
11 women with 11 children were delivered to the United States 
Immigration Department for deportation ; 2 mothers (minors) 
and 9 children were committed to the custody of the State 
Board of Charity; 5 women were committed to the mental 
wards of the State Infirmary; 1 woman was committed to the 
Monson State Hospital ; 2 women were committed to the Wren- 
tham State School ; 9 women with 1 child absconded. 

Five husbands were prosecuted for nonsupport, 2 receiving 
sentences, 3 placed on probation. Thirty warrants were issued 
by the courts for the apprehension of the putative fathers, and 
in 15 cases judicial consideration was given, paternity estab- 
lished and support ordered; 2 cases were settled out of court; 
and 5 cases, for which no warrant had been issued, were also 



PartL] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 127 

settled out of court. The application for the issuance of the 
warrants was in nearly everv instance at the request of the un- 
fortunate mother. Marriage was effected in 7 cases. 

The large number of defectives in this class of patients 
necessitated the observation of 63 for feeble-mindedness or in- 
sanitv. As a result, 2 were committed to the "Wrentham State 
School, 5 to the mental wards of the State Infirmary, and 1 to 
the ^lonson State Hospital. 

Seventy-one women and 86 children have continued under 
supervision since their discharge from the State Infirmary; 15 
were replaced at housework; many cases were provided with 
medical care, and in numerous instances private societies and 
benevolent individuals were enlisted in the work of supervision. 

Such follow-up work has unquestionably strengthened the 
sense of responsibility of the mother for her offspring, prevented 
future public dependency, and the separation of many children 
from the mother. Many of these women voluntarily return to 
the office of the Adult Poor Division for counsel and advice. 

At the beginning of the year a letter was sent to every board 
of Overseers of the Poor in the Commonwealth requesting them 
to notify this Board, as early in affairs as possible, of the case 
of any pregnant girl or woman before sending her to the State 
Infirmary, believing that the younger and less sophisticated 
pregnant women might well be cared for in other ways than at 
a public hospital. Partially as a result of this suggestion, 82 
applications for assistance or advice on cases of unmarried 
mothers were received from the Overseers of the Poor, societies, 
agencies, and individuals. The attempt was made to make pro- 
vision outside the State Infirmary for such of these women as 
were pregnant the first time. Eighteen of the cases referred, 
being unacceptable to private societies because of disease or of 
previous similar offences, were admitted to the Infirmary. For 
the remaining 64, suitable arrangements were made outside of 
the institution. In this way not only did the State save at 
least $1,800, but what is of greater moment, the less sophisti- 
cated girls received individual care. 



128 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

MoTHEKs' Aid. 
Families with Settlement. 

Under the provisions of chapter 763, Acts of 1913 (see page 
18, ante), '' an act to provide for suitably aiding mothers with 
dependent children," which became operative September 1, 1913, 
the State Board of Charity is required, in its annual report to 
the Legislature, to make a separate report on the work done by 
the Overseers of the Poor in respect to such families in which 
all the members have a legal settlement in the Commonwealth. 

During the three months ending November 30, 1913, the 
State Board of Charity received notices from 97 cities and 
towns of 1,150 mothers with 3,754 dependent children under 
fourteen years of age having legal settlement. This number 
included 819 widows with 2,648 dependent children. 

As this law was enacted after the cities and towns had re- 
ceived their annual appropriations, many of them did not com- 
ply with this provision of law during the first three months, 
owing to lack of funds. 

It was deemed unwise by the State Board to formulate defi- 
nite policies until some observation could be made of the cases 
referred by the Overseers of the Poor. As a result of such 
observation, and our general knowledge of relief work, it was 
deemed expedient to outline the following working policies, 
which have been sent to every board of overseers in the Com- 
monwealth : — 

1. Aid granted should be of the kind best adapted to the needs 
of the individual family. In many cases a partial allowance of 
cash is desirable: but we would suggest that only in cases where 
the mother is intelligent and Judicious should the full allowance be 
in cash. Cash allowances should be granted weekly, never monthly. 

2. If there is illness in a family receiving relief under the pro- 
visions of chapter 763, Acts of 1913, which is temporary, requiring 
only medicine or a few doctor's visits, the medical relief or medi- 
cine should be granted under the provisions of the said act; but 
in cases of long-continued illness, or illness requiring hospital 
treatment, notice should be sent under the provisions of section 
14, chapter 85, Revised Laws. Reimbursement by the Common- 
wealth for medical attendance in the home will be made in accord- 
ance with the provisions of chapter 292, Acts of 1909. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 129 

3. Section 4 proTided in part : " This act shall apply to all 
mothers and their dependent children, whether or not they or 
any of them may have a settlement within the commonwealth, who 
shall have resided in the commonwealth not less than three 3^ears." 
Families who have not resided in the Commonwealth for three 
years subsequent to September 1, 1910, should not be considered 
as coming within the provisions of the act. If such a rule were 
not established, many families who were residents of Massachu- 
setts years ago would return from other States for the express pur- 
pose of becoming beneficiaries under the act. 

4. The law contemplates aid for families under a constructive 
plan for a definite period, or until such time as the dependent 
children have attained the age of fourteen years. Although the 
law provides relief and not pensions, the idea that animated its 
passage was that of granting to dependent mothers an income on 
Avhich they may count while their children are below working age. 
The need which was urged before the Legislature, the illustrative 
cases brought forward to emphasize that need, were both such as 
would continue through a period of years. Such a " regular allow- 
ance differs from most material relief in other particulars than 
in the size, or even the regularity, of the relief. It represents a 
settled plan requiring a specified sum per week, the mother being 
informed of the plan, relieved from worry, and thus put in a posi- 
tion to adjust her expenses to her income." It seems wise for the 
present to consider only such cases as will, according to your best 
judgment, require relief for at least a period of one year. Other 
cases can be handled by private charities, by churches, or under 
the Temporary Aid Law. 

5. It is important that the law should not serve as a palliative 
for desertion. It therefore seems unwise to consider an application 
under this act until after one year has elapsed since the desertion 
occurred, and the mother has shown her desire to ameliorate con- 
ditions by requesting the court to issue a warrant for nonsupport 
under the provisions of chapter 456 of the Acts of 1911 and amend- 
ments thereto. We should use our influence to strengthen the 
sense of responsibility for children by making the Jot of the desert- 
ing father less, and not more, eligible. 

6. The mother should not discontinue her employment unless 
it is apparent her health is being impaired, or the children require 
more personal supervision. In many instances it may be desirable 
to arrange for a different kind of employment, or discontinuance 
of service for a portion of the week. There are undoubtedly rela- 
tives or other reliable persons living with many of these families 
who can give the dependent children proper attention during the 
mother's absence. To insist that the mother shall not work, re- 



130 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

gardless of home conditions, would tend to discourage that desire 
for thrift and independence which is an essential element in society. 
The policy should be stimulative, and constructive rather than 
destructive. 

7. The Board suggests that before granting aid to any mother 
with illegitimate children, the overseers consult with the superin- 
tendent of the Divison of State Adult Poor. The presumption is 
against aiding such mothers under this law, since to do so would 
olfend the moral feeling of respectable mothers, and would thus do 
violence to a traditional sentiment that is inseparable from a re- 
spect for virtue. 

8. If the applicant has funds to an appreciable amount, the State 
Board of Charity would appreciate a reference of the case for con- 
sideration prior to the granting of aid. The Board believes that 
unless a definite protective plan can be formulated by the overseer 
whereby a certain amount can be dispensed by a trustee, or other- 
wise, according to the need of each individual case, the case should 
not be considered as coming within the provisions of the act. 

9. If the applicant has an equity to an appreciable amount in 
the real estate upon which the family resides, the State Board 
would appreciate a reference of the case for consideration before 
aid is granted. 

10. To carry out the intent of this law, which applies only to 
those families providing a proper environment for the dependent 
children, the Board decides that the presence of male lodgers 
presents dangers incompatible with the best interests of the family ; 
and declines, as a rule, to reimburse in such cases. The Board pre- 
fers, if necessary, to reimburse, in accordance with the law, for 
additional relief granted to meet the reduction of income caused 
by such removal. 

In general the overseers are conforming to these policies as 
well as could reasonably be expected during this initiative 
period, and owing to their large experience in relief work, will 
undoubtedly administer this law more wisely and efficiently 
than could have been expected of a new organization. 

Greater consideration should be given to the ways and means 
of preventing public dependency if desired results are to be 
effected. Therefore it seems desirable that every board of over- 
seers should secure the services of one or more persons thor- 
oughly trained in methods of investigation; such service could 
be either paid or volunteer. The community should also insist 
upon the election of overseers who are particularly interested 
in the social welfare and have the necessary leisure. 



PartL] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 131 

Special consideration should be given to the quality and suit- 
ability of food supplies and the method of dispensing them ; the 
nutritious, as well as the economic value, should be considered. 

The Board believes that effective help for the needy is con- 
ditional upon close and cordial co-operation between public and 
private agencies, and that the overseers should endeavor to ob- 
tain a closer relationship. ^' Co-operation " between charities 
includes either or both of two sorts of relationship ; the agencies 
may divide among them the needy families, agreeing not to 
trespass on each other's cases; or they may consult and work 
together on the same cases. A division of the field of work is 
a business arrangement often necessary to economy of effort. 
On the other hand, public and private charities need to consult 
with each other on the treatment of the individual cases in 
order that each may profit by the other's point of view. The 
private charity that holds aloof becomes narrow, provincial ; t"he 
public charity that tries to be sufficient unto itself ends by giv- 
ing perfunctory care to its charges. Because of the privilege 
which private charities have of limiting the amount of their 
work, they can often exercise closer supervision over their cases 
than is possible to public visitors. Either associated charities, 
children's societies, district nursing associations, churches, — 
these and many others may further the work of the overseers by 
visiting and by keeping the overseers informed of home condi- 
tions in the intervals of official visits. 

Section 7 of the said act provided : " for the purpose of re- 
imbursing the cities and towns, as provided in the foregoing 
section, there shall be appropriated from the treasury of the 
Commonwealth the sum of fifty thousand dollars for the opera- 
tions of the first year." Xotwithstanding this provision of law, 
no funds were appropriated by the Legislature of 1913. The 
Legislature of 1914 will be requested to appropriate an amount 
sufficient to pro^-ide for reimbursement by the Commonwealth 
for the operations of the three months ending November 
30, 1913. 

Families without Settlement. 
In view of the provisions of sections 5 and 6 of the act the 
details of the Board's supervision were referred to the Division 
of State Adult Poor, under the direction of the Board's Com- 



132 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

mittee on Social Service. For the purpose of carrying out the 
intent of the law the Board has employed a supervisor, a woman 
of large experience in charitable work ; five visitors, women not 
only experienced investigators, but with personalities insuring a 
tactful handling of the problem, and adequate clerical and 
stenographic service. 

The Board has held public hearings with private charities 
and boards of overseers of the poor throughout the Common- 
wealth, and will continue to do so. The Board's Committee on 
Social Sen'ice has held frequent meetings and kept in close 
touch with the operation of the law. During the three months 
ending Xovember 30, 1913, this Board received notices from 97 
cities and tovms of 1,150 mothers with 3,754 dependent chil- 
dren under fourteen years of age. having legal settlement, in- 
cluding 819 widows with 2,648 dependent children; and from 
36 cities and tovms of 153 women with 477 dependent children 
under fourteen years of age, having no settlement, including 
79 widows with 233 dependent children. 

Since the issuance of certain definite policies formulated by 
the Board after careful observation of the cases referred by the 
overseers, a large number of the cases have been found to be 
unsuitable, and the overseers notified that they should be re- 
lieved in other ways or through other relief laws. The Board 
believes that relief should be administered according to general 
policies. Those thus far established by the Board have been 
incorporated in the foregoing report on the work done by the 
Overseers of the Poor in respect to settled families. 

Since the people who may benefit by this act will inevitably 
adapt their lives to the conditions under which they can receive 
help, they should know what these conditions are. The policies 
according to which public authorities administer the ample re- 
lief provided for in this law will have an educational influence, 
not only upon beneficiaries, but upon all those families that are 
on the border line of need. This influence will be wholesome 
in proportion to the wisdom shown by the overseers and the 
State Board of Charity. Obviously no one can draw an arbi- 
trary line between a fit and an unfit mother. The extremes of 
fitness or unfitness all will agree upon. It is the doubtful cases 
about which questions would arise. Since this aid which the 



Parti.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 133 

public gives is adequate, the Board feels that we can ask a 
fairly high standard of character and home care from the moth- 
ers. With such a reward in view, it is a poor sort of woman 
who will not do well. The public authorities can make ade- 
quate relief a powerful lever to lift and keep mothers to a high 
standard of home care. If we grant the aid to any woman 
whose care of her children will just pass muster, we throw away 
a chance to make these women improve. If, on the contrary, 
we make relief under this law conditional upon a fairly high 
standard of home care, we shall find that the mothers will rise 
to this standard. The fact is that a mother of little children 
who will not attend conscientiously to their diet, cleanliness, 
health and conduct for the sake of an adequate income, steadier 
possibly than were her husband's wages, is not the sort of woman 
Massachusetts wants to help under this act. In fine, possible 
and actual beneficiaries will adapt themselves to the conditions 
which attend the receipt of this relief. We can hardly ex- 
aggerate the beneficent influence which a relief policy, admin- 
istered always with broad educational aims in mind, may 
exercise on the people of the State. The Board believes the 
Legislature showed wise forethought in safeguarding the tax- 
payers of the Commonwealth by placing the local administra- 
tion of this law with the Overseers of the Poor, rather than 
create independent relief agencies at large expense. 

It is to be regretted that the agitation for so-called widows' 
pensions should have become so fixed in the public mind that the 
present law is looked upon as a pension act or annuity rather 
than a relief measure. The opportunity for learning the causes 
of dependency was never so ample as under this law, and the 
Board will devote as much time as possible to such research. 
In this connection we would emphasize the value of informa- 
tion on record with private charities, and the need of their 
co-operation. The disposition on the part of a few private char- 
ities to shift the burden of responsibility for their cases after 
this law became operative was most ill advised. In general, 
the private charities are disposed to make no change in their 
attitude, and have been of invaluable assistance to this Board. 
The operation of this law presents problems closely allied to 
housing and health conditions, and is already proving to be an 



134 



STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 



important lever in creating better living standards. Owing to 
the lack of civic organization in some sections of the Common- 
wealth, the Board feels the necessity of developing a community 
interest, hoping to imcover resources that will undoubtedly 
assist in removing some of the burdens now imposed upon the 
taxpayers. 

For the purpose of reimbursing the cities and towns for the 
operations of the three months ending Xovember 30, 1913, and 
the ensuing fiscal year ending Xovember 30. 1914, the Board 
has estimated that $175,000 will be necessary. 

Aliex Immigeaxts. 
Under the operation of the rules laid down by the Federal 
Department of Commerce and Labor governing reimbursement 
by the United States government to States for aid rendered to 
indigent alien immigTants who have fallen into distress within 
a year after landing, the Board reported to the Commissioner 
of ImmigTation. during the year ending Xovember 30, 1913, 
59 cases of such immigrants, of which 30 were verified and 
allowed. Of the remaining 29, 12 were not verified, 1 was dis- 
charged from hospital before investigation by the United States 
officials, 3 were withdrawn, 1 died, 2 were found not to have 
landed within the year, 5 absconded. 1 was discharged before 
notice was received, and 4 cases were not allowed. Of the 30 
cases allowed. 9 were Boston landings, 3 Providence. 4 Vance- 
boro, Me.. 12 Xew York, and 2 Xewport, R. I. The amount 
received by the Board and transmitted to the Treasurer of the 
Commonwealth during the year was $1,090. This covered 31

ChILDEEN IX THE CaEE AND CuSTODY OF THE BoAKD. 

By reference to the tables on page 146, et seq., it will ap- 
pear that at the beginning of the last official year, December 1, 
1912, there were 5,222 children in the care and custody of the 
Board, — 377 delinquent children, 29 wayward children, 2,967 
neglected children, and 1,849 dependent children. There were 
850 children received during the year, viz., 141 delinquent chil- 
dren, 14 wa^-ward children, 402 neglected children, and 293 
dependent children. The total number under care during the 
year was, therefore, 6,072. There were 578 discharged, viz., 
114 delinquent children, 3 wayward children, 265 neglected 
children, and 196 dependent children. At the close of the year, 
^N'ovember 30, 1913, there remained in charge of the Board, 
therefore, 5,494 children, classified as : delinquent children, 
404; waward children, 40; neglected children, 3,104; and 
dependents, 1,946. Of the 6,072 children under care, 5,115 
were over three years of age and were cared for as follows: in 
places receiving wages, 735; in places free of expense to the 
State for board, 561 ; in places partly supported by the State, 
90; in places fully supported by the State, 3,130; at the State 
Infirmary and other institutions, not penal, subject to care and 
treatment, 441; married, 11; and whereabouts unknown, 147.^ 

Children under Three Years of Age. 
The total number of infants in charge of the Board at the 
beginning of the official year December 1, 1912, was 373; the 
number received during the year was 256, making the whole 
number supported by the State 629. There remained at the 
close of the official year, November 30, 1913, 379 infants. Of 
the 629 infants supported, 5 were legalh^ adopted; 159 were 
transferred, having reached the age of three years; 36 were 

' In addition to these 5,494 children, the Board had under supervision and visitation, Novem- 
ber 30, 1913, 439 inmates of the Lyman School for Boys; 305 inmates of the State Industrial 
School for Girls; 179 inmates of the Industrial School for Boj-s; 1,113 boys and 345 girls in the 
custody of the Trustees for Massachusetts Training Schools outside of the schools; 123 boys and 
76 girls, inmates of the Massachusetts Hospital School; 86 boys and 126 girls, inmates of the 
four State sanatoria; 70 boys and 143 girls, inmates of the State Infirmary, who are either young 
infants with their mothers or else under hospital treatment; 481 inmates of the county training 
schools, and 688 children supported at the expense of the cities and towns; making, approxi- 
mately a total of 9,668 children in the care and custody and under the supervision of the Board . 



136 STATE BOARD OF CHARIT\\ [P. D. 17. 

discharged to relatives and 1 to a friend: S to places of settle- 
ment ; 1 to coui't ; 1 was discharged and placed in the Home for 
Destitute Catholic Children by order of the court: 2 were dis- 
charged on bail; and 37 died. Thirteen of the remaining 379 
were in free homes. 

Eighty-five of the 256 infants received were committed by 
the Overseers of the Poor, and 10 by the superintendent of the 
State Infirmary, under the provisions of section 20. chapter 83 
of the Revised Laws. Twenty-nine of this number were found- 
lings and the remainder indigent infants, having no known 
settlement in the Commonwealth. Sixty-eight children were 
received under section 36, chapter S3, and 93 were committed 
as neglected under the provisions of chapter 334 of the Acts of 
the year 1903, as amended by chapter 131 of the Acts of the 
year 1909. 

The medical visitors and their assistants made 5,096 visits. 
This number includes visits to infant wards boarded in families, 
investigation of homes of applicants for infant wards to board. 
and inspection of homes of applicants for licenses to board in- 
fants; also physical examination of children at this office and 
at the Xursery. 

There were 296 children admitted to the Xursery. 

The percentage of mortality for the year for the whole nimi- 
ber of children supported was 5.88. 

Two hundred and three of the 629 children supported during 
the year were imder one year of age. Thirty of this number 
died, making the percentage of deaths for infants under one 
year of age, 14.77. 

The mortality was about the same as last year. Of the 37 
deaths, 12 were at the State Infirmary, and 7 of the 12 died of 
congenital syphilis. 

There has been a notable increase in the ntmiber of found- 
lings in the last two years. In 1911 there were 7 ; in 1912. 25 ; 
and this year, 29. 

Most of the visiting of children under three years of age is 
done by the two registered nurses. They direct the boarding 
women in the general care of the infants, and especially in the 
preparation of food prescribed for each when they are sent out 
to board. Thev report cases needing hospital treatment and 



PartL] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 137 

arrange for admission. They visit and report on homes of 
women who apply for children under three years of age to 
board ; and also inspect homes of applicants for licenses to main- 
tain boarding-houses for infants. The applications for licenses 
are received from all parts of the State. 

The Nursery, at 19 Pinckney Street, for the temporary care 
of infants and examination of all children received by the De- 
partment, is convenient and satisfactory. The matron and her 
assistant, besides caring for the infants, look after the examin- 
ing rooms and attend to the transportation of diseased infants 
to the State Infirmary. 

Children over Three Years of Age, 

Children over three years of age in care of the Department 
November 30, 1913, numbered 5,115. This number includes 
3,012 children between the age of three and twelve, 1,256 boys 
over twelve, and 847 girls over twelve. 

There have been few changes in the system within the year. 
Perhaps the most important is the accomplishment of a plan 
formulated last spring by which all girls above the age of twelve 
years are placed in one group. Each visitor in this group has 
under supervision an average of 70 girls, a number too large to 
insure the best results for each girl, especially when we consider 
the many difficult and defective cases we are obliged to receive. 

In the supervision and care of older boys the same difficulty 
exists. Each visitor has too many boys assigned to his care for 
him to obtain the best results in placing and directing them, as 
well as in assisting them to secure the most profitable and con- 
genial employment. 

About 47 per cent, of our boys and girls over fourteen years 
of age who are attending school are being boarded at the ex- 
pense of the State. Suitable homes in which children may be 
placed without pajnuent of board, and at the same time allowed 
to attend school, are not readily found, and we have come to 
realize that too great a demand is placed upon a child of four- 
teen years who, in addition to his school duties, is obliged to 
earn his board and clothing by work on the farm or in the home 
outside school hours.

In spite of obstacles, we are gratified at the progress being 
made in educational advantages for our boys and girls. The

There are 642 girls and 961 boys over fourteen years of age 
in our care. Of the 642 girls, as may be seen by this table, 
296, or 46 per cent., are receiving an education in grammar, 
high, normal, trades schools, or academies. A study of this 
group shows that of 203 girls who are attending grammar 
school, 75 are especially worthy of mention because of excellent 
work and ambition to continue at school. Sixty-three girls are 
now in high school, all doing well, and deserving assistance in 
completing the course. The following are remarkable for schol- 
arship and effort : — 

C. M., thirteen years of age, three and one-half years in our 
care, first year in high school, heads her class in every study; 
is said by her teacher to have a remarkable mind, and has un- 
usual ability. S. M. R., seventeen years of age, who came to 
us as a neglected child seven years ago, is a sophomore at high 
school ; has led her class for past four years ; is also a good 
musician. M. C. V., fourteen years, in our care since infancy, 
is a sophomore in city high school; has excellent reports. A. B., 
nineteen years old, in our care '^ve years, sophomore ; ambitious 
to become a teacher; principal gives excellent reports. F. S., 
eighteen years of age, in our care five and one-half years, gradu- 
ated from high school mth honors; taking graduate course in 
German. R. P., fifteen years old, in our care ten years; grad- 
uated from grammar school with honors ; now junior at high 
school; has excellent reports. M. V., fourteen years old, in 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 139 

care of State eleven years, is a sophomore at high school; ex- 
cellent reports. 

Thirty girls are doing satisfactory work in nonnal schools, 
commercial colleges and trades schools. 

Although it is true that a majority of our girls are placed 
at housework, we have a large number who have shown tastes 
for other things, and we are gratified at their success in their 
chosen lines of Avork. Several who have shown ability and in- 
clination have been assisted in securing the kind of work to 
which they are best adapted. Thirty-two girls are employed as 
follows : clerks, 3 ; bookkeepers, 3 ; stenogTaphers, 3 ; teacher, 1 ; 
factory work (including corset, straw, and shoe factories), 15; 
training school for nurses, 4 ; telephone school, 1 ; dress- 
making, 2. 

Of the 961 boys over fourteen years of age, 242, or 25 per 
cent., are receiving an education, the majority in grammar 
schools. Those who have exceptional ability and ambition have 
been given opportunity to attend high school, and one boy is 
now working his way through college. Thirty-four are at high 
school doing satisfactory work. Of this group, some worthy of 
mention are: J. Y., a splendid boy, nineteen years old, is a 
senior in high school ; is said by principal to be the best influ- 
ence in the school; hopes to enter Massachusetts Agricultural 
College next year. A. V. G., eighteen years old, is a junior at 
high school doing fine work ; expects to enter college and become 
professor of modem languages. J. B., twenty years old, in 
high school, doing excellent work; has won scholarship. J. V., 
eighteen years old, senior at high school ; a fine student and cap- 
tain of basket ball team. A. R., seventeen years, senior at high 
school, expects to enter college next year. E. G. H., sixteen 
years, third year preparatory school ; is planning to go to Massa- 
chusetts Institute of Technology. 

A large percentage of the boys are placed on farms, but many 
have shown a disinclination for farm work and have been 
assisted in securing more congenial employment. Several boys 
are serving apprenticeships at the following trades: plumber, 
roofer, machinist, iron worker, electric work. Others have se- 
cured employment in factories (shoe, leather, rubber, straw, 
and tack) or as ehaufl'eurs or railroad employees. Especially 



140 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

worthy of mention as having met with success in their chosen 
lines are a telegraph operator averaging $20 a week; an opera- 
tor in a shoe factory earning $12 a week, has $315 in the bank; 
a tack maker, seventeen years old, earning $10.50 a week, has 
saved nearly $100 ; a skilled worker at sewing machine company 
earning $21 a week. 

The situation with reference to the feeble-minded remains 
much the same as last year. Seven have been admitted to the 
schools for the feeble-minded, and applications are on file for 
311 more. As a new building has been completed at Wrentham 
we have been notified that 60 children may be admitted the 
coming month. While this brings some relief, it is by no means 
adequate. To protect the community, 152 who are low grade 
and markedly defective have been placed at the State Infirmary 
while awaiting transfer to the schools; 159 are being cared for 
in small family groups, each containing from 3 to 10 children. 
We have been fairly successful in securing for this task com- 
petent caretakers who look after the physical and material needs 
of the child, but it is impossible to provide suitable training for 
them. 

It is earnestly hoped that adequate provision will soon bo 
made for all these defective children, as it is well known that 
most defectives are a menace to themselves as well as to others 
with whom they come in contact. 

Investigating Department. 

The Investigating Department, in addition to the work on 
admission and discharge of children under sections 20 and 36 
of chapter 83, Revised Laws, has made during this year several 
investigations for the discharge of neglected children. There 
has also been an increasing amount of work on court cases where 
provision seemed to be necessary for the children as dependents. 
although they had been originally brought to the attention of 
the court as neglected. A continuance in such cases is secured 
pending the investigation, and usually other provision than com- 
mitment to the Board is made. 

The investigation of unsettled cases committed by the Over- 
seers of the Poor under section 20. chapter 83. Revised Laws, 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 141 

has been more thorough than in previous years. Xinety-five 
children under three years of age were so committed, — 29 
foundlings, 40 deserted, and 26 indigent children. There were 
sufficient clues to warrant work by the investigating visitor on 
three of the foundling cases. In two instances the relatives 
were located and the children discharged. In the third instance 
a brief history of the child was obtained. Eive of the 40 de- 
serted children have been discharged to relatives and the dis- 
charge of 5 is pending. ^Vherever it was impossible to dis- 
charge the children to parents on account of moral or mental 
unfitness, complete histories were obtained and contribution to 
support procured. One Polish mother was deported with her 
child. Upon investigation 2 of the children who had been com- 
mitted as unsettled were found to have settlements, and the 
Overseers of the Poor in both instances are reimbursing. The 
26 indigent children were known to the investigating visitors 
prior to commitment, and in all but 2 cases commitment had 
been advised by the visitor. Five of these children have been 
discharged to relatives, discharges for 3 are pending, and the 
fathers are paying partial support for 3. Complete histories 
have been obtained with the exception of one case. 

It is encouraging to note in connection with the work with 
deserted children that only 4 out of 40 cases reported but not 
committed needed to be cared for by public charity. The vis- 
itors have been able, with the assistance of the police, postal 
authorities, lying-in hospitals, birth records, public and private 
charitable societies, etc., to locate parents or relatives, and 
supervision and assistance have been obtained for the parents 
in caring for their children. In only 3 cases was it necessary 
to take legal proceedings for abandonment. One child placed 
out by the Board of Children's Guardians of Washington, D. C, 
was returned to that society. The bills due the boarding women 
ranged from $3 to $4 for a few weeks' board, to as high as 
$150. The ages of the children varied from one or two months 
to fifteen or sixteen years. Though the Board can- take no 
action in collecting money due the boarding women, it has been 
through the visitors' instrumentality that all but 5 of the 40 
children reported have been removed. The removal of such 



142 



STATE BOARD OF CHARlTi'. 



[P. D. 17. 



children has meant a return to normal relations between 
parents and children, and has often resulted in married mothers 
being willing to give up their work in factories or restaurants 
to establish themselves in their own homes. The laws for the 
protection of infants have done much to regulate the care of 
children at Iward under two years of age. There is. however, 
a laxity in reporting promptly and fully, and a general igno- 
rance of these laws, not only among boarding women but also 
among doctors, law;\^ers. and public officials. A law similar 
to that already in operation in some States, requiring the re 
porting of all children cared for outside of the homes of their 
parents, would undoubtedly he elective in protecting the in- 
terests of a large number of children. 

The passage of the law providing for aid in the home to 
mothers with dependent children Tchapter 763. Acts of 1913 i 
has not appreciably affected the work of this Division. Al- 
though many of the applicants for assistance under this law 
have been known previously to the Minor Wards Division, other 
plans had been made for them. In only one instance was an 
application for aid instigated by the Division. It is interest- 
ing to note that in this case the mother, a widow, signified her 
intention to marry, thus Woming ineligible for support under 
this act. Ix-fore the investigation for aid in the home was 
completed.

Support. 

Following the policy of former years, attention has been given 
to the collection of support, or partial support, of unsettled 
children from relatives, and support of settled children from 
Overseers of the Poor of the city or town of settlement. 
Through voluntary agreements, signed on the date of acceptance, 
$2,201.12 has been received from relatives and $9,310.86 from 
overseers. Through failure to keep these voluntary agreements, 
or through refusal to sign an agreement for support, legal and 
court action has been necessary. The sum of $4,729.62 has 
been collected in this way, making a total of $16,241.60 re- 
ceived during the year towards the support of dei>endent and 
neglected children. 

A decision of importance was rendered by the Superior Court 
in a case where the Overseers of the Poor had instituted pro- 
ceedings under the neglect law (Acts of 1903, chapter 334) 
against a settled child. The Board had previously made an 



144 



STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 



investigatiou and had offered to receive the child upon reim- 
bursement. The case was contested by the Board on the ground 
that, as the parent was suitable to have the custody of the child 
and was merely poor, the child was not neglected but dependent, 
and therefore a proper charge upon the place of settlement. 
The Superior Court sustained the contention of the Board and 
dismissed the complaint for neglect. Since March 11. 1913, 
the date of the decision, the Overseers of the Poor have been 
reimbursing the Board for the support of the child as de- 
pendent. This decision affects a large number of cases of 
dependent settled children whom the local overseers, rather than 
provide for as the law requires, might endeavor to commit to 
the Board under the neglect law. 

The following 20 cities and 49 towns are taking advantage 
of the facilities offered by the State Board for placing their 
settled children in families, and are reimbursing for the 
same : —

JS^onsupport Proceedings. 
During the year ending November 30, 1913, the sum of 
$3,602.57 was collected from parents of children in the care 
of the Board through proceedings under the Uniform Desertion 
Act (Acts of 1911, chapter 456), or through agTeements en- 
tered into to avoid court proceedings. This amount is part of 
the sum of $4,729.62 mentioned in the section entitled '' Sup- 
port," and represents the portion obtained by direct legal action 
by the special agent of the Board. 

'Adoptions. 

During the past year 168 applications have been received 
from families desiring to adopt children. Thirteen of these 
were refused at once without investigation; 127 have been given 
careful investigation by correspondence and personal visits, and 
of this number 26 were withdrawn; 25 disapproved as unsuit- 
able; 76 approved. There are now 28 awaiting investigation. 
iNTearly all of these applications were received from Massachu- 
setts, a few coming from the other Xew England States. 

In the 76 approved homes 70 children have been placed, and 
arrangements are being made for filling the other 6. It is an 
interesting fact that 4 of these families have already adopted a 
child from this Department. 

Thirty children (16 boys and 14 girls) were legally adopted 
last year. The oldest child adopted was a girl seventeen years 
old and the youngest a girl of fourteen months. One child 
died while on trial for adoption. All of these homes are in 
Massachusetts except one which is in Washington, D. C. 

There are now 89 children on trial for adoption in homes 
which have been investigated and approved. 

The following tables furnish comparative data concerning 
the several classes of the Board's children : —

STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 



Licensed Boakdixg-houses foe Ixfaxts. 

During the last official year 405 licenses to maintain board- 
ing-houses for infants were gi-anted by the Board under the 
provisions of section 2, chapter 83, Revised Laws, in 64 cities 
and towns, in addition to the 349 licenses in force at the ex- 
piration of the previous year; 323 licenses expired, by the one 
year limitation ; 48 were revoked, — 45 on account of change 
of residence, 1 by death, and 2 for neglect of infants; and 383 
licenses, permitting the boarding of 793 infants in 62 cities 
and towns, remained in force Xovember 30, 1913. These 
represent the licensed homes not only of infants supported by 
the Commonwealth, but those placed out by the parents of 
infants, and many private agencies. 

The following table shows the number of licenses issued, the 
number of cities and towns where licensees reside, the number 
of licenses expired and revoked, the whole number in force, 
etc., for the year ending Xovember 30, 1913, and twenty-one 
preceding years : —

Four licenses were suspended for failure or neglect to com- 
ply with the regulations for lying-in hospitals. One complaint 
for keeping a lying-in hospital without a license was prosecuted 
in court and the defendant found guilty and fined. 

One hundred and sixty-four visits of inspection of lying-in 
hospitals were made during the ye^r ending Xovember 30, 
1913. 

Particular attention has been paid to the enforcement of 
Rules 8 and 9 of the regulations for lying-in hospitals. These 
rules are as follows : — 

Rule 8. — Each licensee shall be responsible for the use at every 
birth, for the prevention of ophthalmia neonatorum, of either the 
1 per cent, solution of nitrate of silver furnished to physicians by 
the State Board of Health or some similar preparation having the 
approval of the said Board. 

Fade 9. — A licensee shall send notice in writing to the State 
Board of Health, Boston, within six liours after the discharge from 
his lying-in hospital, of an infant whose eyes show or have shown 



164 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

the presence of ophthalmia neonatorum, stating the destination of 
said infant. A duplicate of the notice shall at the same time be 
sent to the Stale Board of Charity, Boston. 

All the licensed hospitals are obliged to use some prophylactic 
in the eyes of the new-born infant for the purpose of prevent- 
ing ophthalmia neonatorum. A large proportion use the prep- 
aration of 1 per cent, nitrate of silver prepared and furnished 
free of charge by the State Board of Health; others prefer 
argyrol. Reports of the discharge of ophthalmia cases as re- 
quired by Rule 9 are received on an average of 23 per month. 
As the yearly number of births in the licensed lying-in hos- 
pitals is approximately 10,000, these figures show that " sore 
eyes " develop in 2.76 per cent, of births in licensed lying-in 
hospitals. Most licensees report the least irritation from what- 
ever cause in the infant's eyes; and therefore the notices do 
not entirely signify positive cases of ophthalmia neonatorum. 
Some irritation in the infant's eyes is caused by the use of the 
prophylactic, and that condition is generally reported. 

The following table shows the reports received by the State 
Board of Health from lying-in hospitals in accordance with 
Rule 9 for the period from May 1 to November 30, 1913 : —

166 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

Special effort is made to oblige licensees to secure the correct 
names of patients received in order that correct names shall 
be returned to the city or town clerk in the birth record. Much 
of the difficulty in obtaining correct names is due to the indif- 
ference on the part of the physicians and attendants to make 
inquiries in order to secure the correct spelling of names. This 
is particularly true in manufacturing towns where there are 
many foreigners, the names being difficult to establish. 

TuiTiox OF Childeex rxDER THE Care axd Co^'teol of 

THE Board. 

Section 4 of chapter 44 of the Revised Laws provides that, 
'' For the tuition in the public schools in any city or town of 
a child between the ages of five and fifteen years who shall be 
placed elsewhere than in his OAvn home by the state board of 
charity ... or kept under the control of . . . said board in 
said city or town, the commonwealth shall pay to said city or 
town . . . fifty cents for each week of five days, or major part 
thereof, of attendance of every such child in the public schools. 
For the transportation to and from a public school of any child 
whose tuition is payable by the commonwealth . . . the com- 
monwealth . . . shall pay to the city or town furnishing such 
transportation, for each week of five days or major part thereof, 
an amount equal to the average amount for each child paid 
by said city or town per week for the transportation of children 
to and from school over the route by which such child is con- 
veyed." 

Under the operation of this law, bills received from 217 
cities and to^ms, for the tuition and transportation of 2,781 
children, amounting to $39,999.78, — viz., schooling, $35,- 
555.50; transportation, $4,444.28, — were audited by the 
Board and paid by the Treasurer of the Commonwealth, during 
the last official vear, as follows : —

Ohaeitable Coepoeations 



CH-IEITABLE CORPOEATIONS. 



Investigation of Charitable Organizations seeking Incorporation. 
Chapter ISI of the Acts of 1910 requires the Board to in- 
vestigate, give public hearing, and report its findings to the 
Secretary of the Commonwealth, in all cases of charitable 
organizations which seek incorporation. The text of the act is 
as follows : — 

Acts of 1910, Chapter 181. 

Section 1. Before making and issuing a certificate for the incorpora- 
tion of a charitable corporation the secretary of the commonwealth shall 
also forward such statement as is described in the preceding section to 
the state board of charity, which shall immediately make an investiga- 
tion as to the persons who have asked to be incorporated and as to the 
purposes of the incorporation, and any other material facts relative 
thereto, and shall give them a public hearing, notice of which shall be 
pubhshed once a week for three successive weeks in some paper pub- 
lished in the county in which the corporation is to have its principal 
office or rooms, and if said office or rooms are to be in Boston, in some 
Boston daily paper, the last publication to be at least three days before 
the day set for the hearing, and shall forthwith report to the secretary 
of the commonwealth all the facts ascertained by it. If it appears to 
the secretary of the commonwealth from said report or otherwise that 
the probable purpose of the formation of the proposed corporation is 
to cover any illegal business, or that the persons asking for incorpora- 
tion are not suitable persons, from lack of financial abihty or from any 
other cause, he shall refuse to issue his certificate. If he refuses to issue 
his certificate, the persons asking to be incorporated may appeal to the 
superior court, which shall hear the case and finally detennine whether 
or not the certificate of incorporation shall be issued. 

Section 2. This act shall take effect upon its passage. 

During the year ending Xovember 30. 1913, 63 applications 
for charters have been referred by the Secretary of the Com- 
monwealth to this Board, which has investigated, given hear- 
ings, and reported upon the 53 applications noted below. In

Forty-five of the above petitions have been granted and char-

held. Of the 8 applications which were refused or withheld, 
2 were for private gain, 2 covered insurance features, 1 was a 
credit union, 1 a business loan agency, 1 a social organization, 
and 1 was carried on in quarters which were so poor as to be 
unsuited to the proposed work. 

During the three years and nine months which have elapsed 
since the passage of the law (March 7, 1910, to ^N'ovember 30, 
1913) the Board has reported upon 213 applications for char- 
ters, 167 of which were gTanted and 46 refused, while in 28 
other cases the applications were withdrawn. 

Inspection of Charitable Corporations. 

Chapter 379 of the Acts of 1909 requires the State Board of 
Charity to make annual inspection of charitable corporations 
which consent to said inspection. The text of the act is as 
follows : — 

Acts of 1909, Chapter 379. 

Section 1. The state board of charity, upon the request or with the 
consent of a charitable corporation which, under the provisions of sec- 
tion fourteen of chapter eighty-four of the Revised Laws, as amended 
by chapter four hundred and two of the acts of the year nineteen hun- 



vi STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

dred and three, is requii-ed lo make au auuual report to said board, 
shall, at least once iii every year, visit and inspect the institution or 
investigate the work of such corporation. 

Section 2. This act shall take effect upon its passage. 

In the three years since the work of inspection was begun, 
597 visits have been made to charitable corporations in all parts 
of the Commonwealth. 

The great possibilities of supervision over the field of private 
charity are becoming increasingly apparent, not only in the 
matter of safegtiarding the public from fraud and imposture, 
but also in developing improved standards of work. Already 
the more wide-awake societies are alive to these advantages and 
are endeavoring to bring about a closer co-operation with the 
Board. 

The Board does not endorse charities seeking contributions 
from the public. This rule is never varied, regardless of the 
known standing of the society in question. For this reason no 
agencies are warranted in tising the fact that they have been 
inspected, in such manner as to lead the ptiblic to infer that 
inspection means their approval by this Board. 

During the past year 241 charitable corporations have been 
inspected. Seven were found to be non-charitable. Fifty-three 
may be classed as badly managed, since they do not measure up 
to reasonable standards of work. Among them are 8 children's 
homes, 5 day nurseries, 4 fresh-air homes and camps, 5 societies 
for club and class work, 3 old persons' homes, 1 dispensary, 17 
relief societies, and 10 others giving variotis forms of assistance. 

The 180 other societies vary greatly in their efficiency. Many 
of them are not in the first rank, but even these are endeavoring 
to maintain fair standards in some of the essential require- 
ments, and cannot, therefore, be classed as badly managed. In 
this, as in previous reports, the Board has withheld the names 
of the charities which have been inspected, a course for which 
there appears to be ample justification, since an increasing num- 
ber of societies have shown a determination to raise their stand- 
ards of work and have come into conference with the Board 
with this end in view. As a result of stich conference several 
societies have adopted suggestions which will undoubtedly make 



Part IL] CHARITABLE CORPORATIONS. vii 

their work more valuable. The Board stands ready to give to 
all charities that have been inspected an opinion as to the effi- 
ciency of their work, with reasons therefor. 

Since the work of inspection was begun, three years ago, the 
Board has visited a majority of the incorporated charitable 
organizations in the State, and has had an opportunity to study 
and compare the methods employed by a large group of persons, 
a number of whom are experts in their several fields. It may 
therefore be of service to those in charge of the various charitable 
agencies to set out a few general standards which are recognized 
and followed by many social workers. Such a statement should 
assist the various societies to measure the efficiency of their 
methods, and may also be instrumental in keeping before the 
contributing public its duty to require a high quality of service 
from those who are the trustees of its gifts. 

The first requisite of a well-managed society is an active board 
of directors, who shall intelligently outline the general policies 
of their agency and assist and encourage the administrative 
officers to follow such policies. They should regard themselves 
as the trustees of the public, so far as the handling of the fund 
is concerned, and not profit in any financial way through their 
position, unless they perform a large amount of administrative 
work, and their compensation is voted by the Board. 

A number of the charities visited are virtually in the hands 
of one person, often the principal worker. In some cases the 
latter has been the founder of the society, and the work is his 
livelihood. The directors in such cases are often mere dummies 
who lend their names and take none of the responsibilities which 
belong to them. In other cases, the workers may come and go 
at the will of the Board, but during their term of employment 
they are expected to shoulder all the responsibility. There are 
various reasons for this apathy on the part of the directors. It 
may be due to lack of interest in the work; to timidity caused 
by the autocratic attitude of the paid worker, or to a belief in 
the stability of the charity whereby they assume that it will 
run without their assistance. Such a state of mind is account- 
able for the unprogressive methods of many so-called " old- 
fashioned charities." 

In some of the agencies a single director assumes full power 



viii STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

TO settle both questions of policy and matters of detail. In 
addition to the fact that his attitude is wrong, he may also prove 
a benevolent tyrant. In still others he may be unfitted, through 
lack of knowledge and infirmity of temperament, or both, to 
guide others, in which case the beneficiaries suffer in proportion 
as they are dependent upon the charity for their care. In one 
society the immediate residt is that unsuitable employees are 
retained because they will work for less than those who are better 
qualified. The imnates are not considerately treated, and the 
food is not always suited to their condition. The active director 
will listen to no criticism and the rest of the board are compliant. 

The directors should be responsible for raising needed f imds ; 
they should not require the administrative officers to assume the 
burden. If they require assistance in this work it should be 
given by a salaried person and not by a collector on commission. 
Xor should directors allow benefits or entertainments to be man- 
aged by professional persons. The entire proceeds of such 
aff'airs. after the payment of printing and other necessary ex- 
penses, shoidd be paid to the charity which is sought to be aided 
by them. The professional promoter, on the other hand, usually 
charges a large amount of money compared with the time ex- 
pended. If the proceeds of the benefit promise to be substantial, 
he may contract for a comparatively small commission. Benefits 
which net $5,000, out of which the promoter receives $1,000, 
are. however, expensive aff'airs for the community. If he agrees 
upon a lump sum for service and expenses, he may put in suffi- 
cient time to assure himself of that amount, after which his 
energy lags. 

Beneficiaries should never be allowed to solicit for the charity. 
In some of the children's homes the little ones are sent out daily 
with baskets to collect food, are encouraged to ask passers-by for 
money, to carry begging letters, and, in the case of one home, to 
drag boxes and wood for kindling through the streets. The least 
offenders in this direction send their children out to sell tickets 
for entertainments or benefits. The tendency in such cases is 
to accustom the children to begging methods rather than to the 
idea of rendering value for what they receive. Such a course, 
persisted in, is likely to breed paupers faster than it creates 
citizens. 



Part IL] CHARITABLE CORPORATIONS. ix 

Proper financial accounts of receipts and disbursements should 
be kept and an annual audit made. A bond should be required 
from persons having the custody of funds, the expense of which 
is a legitimate charge upon the society. Many directors allow 
a lack of system in a charitable society vv'hich they would not 
tolerate in a business office because they fail to realize their 
trusteeship in the matter of caring for charitable funds. Some 
attempt to excuse their laxness on the score of rendering the 
services without charge; while others are not informed as to 
proper methods. 

Another important requisite in a well-managed organization 
is the employment of workers who are especially trained in 
social work. This field is fast coming to be recognized as special- 
ized ; so much so that the untrained, well-intentioned '^ charity 
worker " is no longer employed by societies which seek to do 
efficient work. Such agencies are convinced that doles pauperize 
the recipient, and that constructive plans for aiding needy per- 
sons to their feet must be made by those who have studied the 
causes of poverty and the best methods of preventing its re- 
currence. 

Among the 17 relief societies which are classed as badly man- 
aged there are several with good-sized funds. Xot one has a 
worker who is capable of making a skilful inquiry into the causes 
of distress among its applicants ; nor do they co-operate with 
societies which have the proper machinery for making good in- 
vestigations. They exchange no information with other relief 
societies in the community, and are not in a position to judge 
whether or not their work duplicates that of other agencies. 
Many of them have long lists of beneficiaries to whom they give 
very small amounts. So few facts have they in regard to the 
persons they aid that the question of adequacy cannot have been 
considered by them, and they leave the beneficiaries to piece 
out their bounty by soliciting aid from other organizations 
which employ similar methods. Societies which desire to study 
the problem of relieving the poor should therefore employ per- 
sons who are able to make thorough investigations or else co- 
operate with agencies which have the machinery for this work. 

Some societies whose workers are not trained in investigation 
co-operate with other societies having trained workers to the 



X STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

extent of getting information from tliem about applicants. 
This course, however, serves no useful purpose if the agents 
receiving such assistance are so inexperienced that they cannot 
use it vs^isely. A day nursery follov^ing this method was found 
to be filing much useful information away which it had paid 
another society to furnish, and the matron was using her o\vn 
judgment as to admissions. 

Workers should therefore have the proper background of train- 
ing and experience to interpret the facts ; only then will they be 
in a position to make plans, not only to relieve distress, but to 
prevent a recurrence of the need. 

They should know all the resources of their community and be 
able to co-operate with them in carrying out plans. If this were 
done many societies could handle a larger number of cases and 
give more adequate relief without materially increasing their 
expenditures for aid given. Some of the agencies could, by a 
more exhaustive study of their cases, bring about the co-operation 
of sources of aid which are often unknown to them. Many of 
these are natural sources, within the family itself; others are 
less intimately connected, and yet may represent bonds of union. 
These include ties of relationship, religion, and fraternity. Be- 
sides, there are the various societies operating in the charitable 
field which should be enlisted in the work of aiding applicants 
adequately. 

Some agencies which are criticized for spending a compara- 
tively small amount for relief, in comparison with that paid out 
for salaries, are, in fact, doing creditable work in organizing 
aid for their cases. Such aid may include some material relief 
from their own treasury, but their services may also be enlisted 
to procure for the applicant other forms of relief which may be 
necessary to restore him to self-support. It is a well-known fact 
that a large proportion of the applicants for charity require, not 
only the immediate necessaries, such as food, fuel and clothing, 
but medical aid, a change of work, or some other form of assist- 
ance which is calculated to restore the applicant to a normal 
plane of living. Such constructive effort is represented in the 
budget of the society by salaries rather than by payment for 
tangible items of relief. 

Persistent follow-up work is necessary in order that plans for 



Part IL] CHARITABLE CORPORATIONS. xi 

the relief of applicants shall not miscarry. An agency which 
handles cases of young unmarried mothers deals with but one 
phase of the problem when it gives them institutional care for a 
foAV weeks or months and then sends them out to face the world 
without further provision. Girls who are feeble-minded should 
be given proper protection and should not be placed unsuper- 
vised in the community. Intelligent after-care requires special 
workers and cannot be given by persons whose time is more or 
less taken up with other pressing work. If the society is not 
in a position to provide such workers it should co-operate with 
some agency that has the machinery. Thus a dispensary which 
has among its patients many expectant mothers who are unmar- 
ried refers them for placement and after-care to a children's 
aid society. 

Another test of efficient methods is the kind and quality of the 
records kept. These should show clearly all the facts brought 
out by the investigation, indicating the various steps taken, in 
such manner as to help an able social worker to diagnose the 
causes of distress and form a plan for adequate relief. Some of 
the societies visited keep case records which are useless except 
as an identification of persons aided ; others set down every visit 
made, but the history of the family is so poorly recorded that 
it is impossible for any one not in charge of the case to judge 
whether the work being done is based upon a plan or is wholly 
haphazard. 

The directors should issue an annual report of their work, 
either as a pamphlet or an account published in the local paper, 
which should contain a list of the officers and workers, an audited 
and itemized account of receipts, expenses and investments, the 
number of cases handled, and their disposition. The plan of 
work and the methods used should be clearly stated so as to show 
whether the society is rendering genuine service. The appeal for 
support should rest upon considerations of good work done and 
not upon purely sentimental grounds. 

This outline of general standards of work which applies 
equally to all the charitable agencies is intended to be suggestive 
merely. The question of what are the best accepted methods in 
particular fields of work is one which a number of societies have 
discussed in conferences with the Board. The whole question 



xii STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

of good standards lies at the door of all charitable endeavor, if 
the result is to justify the time and expenditure involved. Feel- 
ing the importance of this matter the Board vv^elcomes every step 
taken by the various charitable agencies to formulate and follow 
reasonable standards in their methods of work, and to bring 
them to the notice of others in the same field. 

Annual Reports of Charitable Corporations. 

The law provides that the Board shall receive annual reports 
of all charitable corporations whose personal property is exempt 
from taxation, and for the dissolution of corporations which fail 
for two successive years to report to this Board. The text of 
the law is as follows : — 

Acts of 1913, Chapter 82. 
An Act relative to Reports of Charitable Corporations. 

Section 1. Section fourteen of chapter eighty-four of the Revised 
Laws, as amended by chapter four hundred and two of the acts of the 
year nineteen hundred and three, is hereby further amended by adding 
at the end thereof the following : — If any corporation subject to the 
provisions of this act shall fail for two successive years to file the said 
report, the supreme judicial court, upon application by the state board 
of charity, after notice and a hearing-, may decree a dissolution of the 
corporation, — so as to read as follows : — Section 14. A charitable 
corporation wdiose personal property is exempt from taxation under the 
provisions of clause three of section five of chapter twelve shall annually, 
on or before the first day of November, make to the state board of 
charity a written or printed report for its last financial year, showing 
its property, its receipts and exjDenditures, the whole number and the 
average number of its beneficiaries and such other information as the 
board may require. If any corporation subject to the provisions of this 
act shall fail for two successive years to file the said report, the supreme 
judicial court, upon application by the state board of charity, after 
notice and a hearing, may decree a dissolution of the corporation. 

Section 2. This act shall take effect upon the first day of November 
in the year nineteen hundred and thirteen. 

Of the 744 corporations whose returns were called for during 
the last official year, 42 failed to respond ; ?A of these delinquents 
have heretofore made the return. The remaining 702 corpora- 
tions filed reports, 23 of them for the first time ; 5 were received 
too late to appear in this report. 

The names of delinquent corporations follow : —
